August 2018 : Fellow, Philosophical Society of England (FPhS)

Institution : The Philosophical Society of England

Award : Fellow (FPhS)

Description : Dark green, lined and bound blue shot green.

Shape : 'Full or simple'

This society has used a number of hoods over its somewhat chequered existence. This one, dark green lined and bound blue shot green (Wales Arts silk) was in use from 1948 until the 1980s: the exact shape was never specified beyond 'full shape': this one is made in Oxford full [f5]. The Society no longer awards an examined Fellowship or hood.
