School colors in linings of Doctorate Hoods?
In cleaning out the costume department of a community theatre, I found four beautiful Doctorate hoods. Two are Ph.D.s [dark blue velvet], one is a Doctor of Education [light blue velvet] and the last is a Doctor of Science or maybe Doctorate of Library Science [yellow velvet]. My question concerns the college colors in the linings.
One Ph.D. hood lining is dark blue with one wide gold chevron. Is that Michigan, Kent State, U of Conn., or some other school? The second Ph.D. is gray with two small white chevrons. The D.Ed. is dark blue with one wide white chevron [Duke?]. The D. Sc. is a pure purple lining only, no chevrons.
Each hood is well made, not a "made for the theatre costume piece," and each shows some wear. But, if I can learn which school goes with which hood, I can offer a bargain price either to my fellow faculty members at NCSU, my daughter's fellow faculty at CSI or someone online.
My search online showed me the degree colors for the velvets, but the school color combinations have been elusive. Can anyone help me? Thanks.
