It is requested that guests and graduates remain in their seats until the Recessional is concluded.
Harrison Salisbury was associated with The New York Times from 1949 through 1975, serving as a correspondent and editor and originator of the “op-ed” page. Mr. Salisbury is an expert on the affairs of Communist countries, particularly the Soviet Union and China, and Southeast Asia.
He has traveled extensively in China, most recently in 1984 when, after 12 years of trying, he was allowed to retrace the Long March of 1934-35. The Long March has come to be the symbol of China’s Communist revolution. In 1934 more than 80,000 Red Army soldiers started out on a westward march to escape Chiang Kai-shek’s government forces. One year and 6,000 miles later, Mao Tse-tung and about 4,000 survivors found sanctuary in northern Shaanxi and eventually overthrew the existing government. Salisbury’s ten- week trek into the past was the first time anyone undertook such a re-creation of a specific event, and resulted in his most recent book, The Long March: The Untold Story, published in 1985.
Salisbury has won numerous awards for journalism, including the Pulitzer Prize for foreign correspondence. He is a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters, a group whose number is limited to 50 drawn from among the 250-member National Institute of Arts and Letters.
In recent years, Salisbury has published Without Fear or Favor: An Uncompromising Look at the New York Times; The Unknown War, an account of the German-Russian battles on the Eastern front during 1941-45; Black Night, White Snow: Russia’s Revolution 1905-17, an account of the turbulent years that produced the Soviet state; a book on China, One Hundred Years of Revolution; and his memoirs, A Journey for Our Times.
High Distinction is accorded each graduating senior whose grade point average is 3.75 or higher. Distinction is bestowed upon seniors who graduate with an overall average between 3.50 and 3.75. These designations in the Commencement program have been based on seven semesters of academic accomplishment, since final grades have not yet been tabulated. Students achieving the mark of Distinction or High Distinction during their final semester’s work will have this honor indicated on their diplomas and final transcripts.
In every university there are those rare faculty members who distinguish themselves and the university through their unique and scholarly contributions of national and international dimension. Beginning this year, the University of Nevada, Las Vegas will present a Distinguished Professor Award to an exceptional faculty member as a means of encouraging truly outstanding performance, enhancing the University’s national reputation, and rewarding the service of those who are making this University a greater institution by enriching the knowledge and the lives of its students.
The 1987 award will be presented by President Maxson at Commencement to Dr. Sheilagh Brooks, a distinguished professor of anthropology who is marking her twentieth year at the University.

The Nevada Centennial Medallion is presented annually to the graduating senior earning the highest four-year scholastic average at UNLV. Due to the early date of Commencement this year, it is impossible to determine by the time of the ceremony the name of the student who has achieved this award for 1987.
However, as soon as all grades have been checked and verified, the 1987 recipient will be identified and. presented the medallion at a special ceremony.
One-hundred-and-one medallions were given to the university by the Rotary Club of Las Vegas at the time of the state’s centennial celebration in 1964. The last medallion will be awarded in 2064, the year of Nevada’s two hundredth birthday.
Previous recipients are listed below in descending order from 1986 to 1964.

John Surina Nancy M. Form Judi D. Record Martin D. Schaffer Diane N. Aiello Steven B. Sedlacek Mary V. Dibble Kathleen Ashton Phyllis J. Zagortz William M. Brown Chris A. Beecroft, Jr.

Graduating seniors who have been initiated into UNLV’s chapter of Phi Kappa Phi National Honor Society are presented with bronze medallions hung on a scarlet cord to wear at the Commencement exercises. Each year Chapter 100 at UNLV invites to membership the top 10 percent of the senior class and the top 5 percent of the junior class in all academic disciplines.
The Presidential Medallion is the official insignia of the President’s Office and is worn at Commencement and other ceremonial occasions. It was a gift to the university from the Student Senate and Activities Board of the Consolidated Students of the University of Nevada (CSUN).
Cast of sterling silver, the medallion embodies the official seal of the State of Nevada. Links of the chain carry the names of current and former presidents of the university with their terms of office, and symbolize the continuity of responsibility in the office.
The University Mace, which has its traditions deeply rooted in history, is carried on ceremonial occasions at the head of the academic procession by the Grand Marshal, whose symbolic duty is the protection of the university, its persons and its processes.
Originally a weapon, the earliest mace was made of iron and was capable of breaking armor. Bishops, forbidden by canon law to bear swords, sometimes took the mace with them into battle. The mace consisted of a long club with a ball of iron, steel or brass at one end, and was used in warfare as late as the 16th century.
The use of the mace as an instrument of ceremony, however, began about the year 1250 in England and France, and is still used widely today in university’ commencement programs as well as in governmental ceremonies.
The UNLV Mace has been cast from polished metal and features a black hardwood staff. Facets of the cubical top embody the university’s seal; a symbolic depiction of the Statue of Liberty; a likeness of Renaissance scholar Leonardo da Vinci, representing the integration of knowledge from many fields; and a shelf of books flanked by artists’ brushes.
The mace bearer today is Mrs. Alice Mason, associate professor of physical education, who recently marked her thirtieth year with the University of Nevada System.
The history of academic dress reaches far back into the early days of the oldest universities. It appears that academic clothing was first introduced and worn at Cambridge and Oxford Universities in the thirteenth centuries.
The European custom was carried to America with the establishment of our own colleges and universities. In 1895 an academic code of dress was adopted, and the standards were accepted by most of the colleges and universities in the United States, Today, the black robe, hood, and cap are generally worn.
Three different types of black gowns may be distinguished in the academic procession. The bachelors’ gowns have long pointed sleeves; the masters’ gowns have oblong sleeves with an arc cut away in the front The doctors’ gowns are faced with velvet and have bell-shaped sleeves with three bars of velvet
The Oxford cap, the so-called mortarboard, is black and has a long tassel fastened to the middle of the top that is worn pendant over the left front of the cap. The hood, draped from the shoulder, denotes by its length and colors the degree and the institution which conferred the degree.

Congratulations to the 1986-87 graduates. The UNLV Alumni Association
requests your presence and that of your guests at a reception immediately
following the commencement ceremony. The reception will be held in the Si
Redd Room located in the Thomas and Mack Center. Refreshments and light
snacks will be served.
As our graduation gift to you, the UNLV Alumni Association is providing your
first year of membership in our organization at no cost to you. You will be
receiving a letter in the mail from our Alumni Office. Return this letter to the
Alumni Office and your membership card will be prepared for you at that time.
Come by and meet the directors of your Alumni Association and share the joy of
graduation with your fellow alumni.
Thomas L. Brooker, President
Alumni Board of Directors
