Chancellor's Badge and Chain of Office
The Chancellor's Badge and Chain of Office were presented to William & Mary by the Society of the Alumni at the investiture of Chancellor Warren E. Burger at Charter Day on February 7, 1987. The badge contains a large depiction of the coat of arms of the College done in enamel on silver. The badge and chain of office were handcrafted by the firm of Thomas Fattorini, gold and silversmiths of Birmingham and London. It is on display in the Special Collections Research Center in Swem Library along with other academic regalia of William & Mary.
A new chancellor's robe was recommended by members of the Board of Visitors (BOV) and Cypher Society in 1993. The BOV officially approved the redesign of the robe and authorized the president to have it designed in a resolution approved at the November 1993 meeting of the BOV.
