The skull and (sometimes) crossed bones was a favourite motif for the school and later the College of Medicine.
This felt pennant from the College of Medicine is part of a larger collection of various college and university pennants in the archives.
The skull motif was also used on ceramic mugs and ashtrays created by the College of Engineering’s Department of Ceramics.
These were often given as graduation gifts and mementos.
Other colleges, too, had identifying images, including the legal eagle for the College of Law, a capital E for the Engineering, and an antelope for the College of Agriculture.
