Abstract

This photograph represents the modern pharmacy graduate who has completed a full-time degree course of study at a university. The colour of the graduation-hood is spectrum green and was chosen by Professor Fred Fastier, with the help of a member of Federation of University Women (which is involved at the University of Otago with the making and lending of much of the academic dress worn at graduation ceremonies) in 1965. Fastier did not like the suggested ‘garish yellow’ which was first chosen as the colour for the hood.
