Cardinal & Gray Society

Since 1966, alumni attending their 50th reunions are distinguished by wearing gray slacks or skirts and a cardinal blazer, bearing a detachable, intricately stitched MIT [breast-pocket] crest. For many years, the 50th reunion class has played an important role in Commencement exercises by leading [graduates] into Killian Court.
