HDS Facts

HDS shield
Harvard alumnus Pierre de Chaignon la Rose designed the Harvard graduate school shields for the occasion of the 1936 Tercentenary of Harvard College. For the HDS shield, he used the Hollis family coat of arms (a blue chevron containing three wood-pigeons with three sprigs of holly interspersed in the white background), beneath the University motto, Veritas.
