Academic Processions: Marching in Step, in 2 pdf pages. This "Resource Guide" contains clickable links to material at Wikipedia, Internet Archive, Google (texts, images, and videos), and other sites. Gowns, robes, sashes, cummerbunds, tassels, pendants, gold and silver chains, and hats of various shapes and colors are only part of the wealth of material covered. Here is a march into an uncertain future made by graduating birds of plumage, laughing, smiling, crying, taking selfies, accompanied by the sedate (and sedated) dignitaries of the Academy, also on the move, with measured step—these gracious geniuses, in their dazzling finery. The topic—with its academic "textures" and "nuances"—is a rich mother lode for anthropologists, humorists, and creative writers. Attached to the document is an HTML version.
