RSE Receives Suede RSE Seal from Daughter of 1938 Alumnus

In September, Mrs. Barbara Towne Patterson shipped a suede RSE logo to the RSE Clubhouse. This unique seal belonged to her late father, Robert Dickinson Towne ‘38. She mentioned that he had always considered it an important piece of RSE memorabilia.  As you can see, the logo is a beautiful rendition of the RSE seal in the House colors of orange and black.

We are wondering if any of you reading this article might know some of the history behind it.
