A few more from the Ivy League, a group of eight high-prestige private universities in the northeastern United States, all but one (Cornell) founded prior to the Revolution. The arms of Harvard, Yale, and Columbia have already been posted. Herewith those of Princeton, Pennsylvania, and Brown. The other two are Dartmouth and Cornell, yet to come.
Princeton University, Princeton, N.J. (founded 1746 by Scottish Presbyterians as the College of New Jersey). The arms date to 1896. I'm not sure how they were originally blazoned, but the orange and black colors are from the institution's sporting colors. "Vet. Nov. Testamentum" is the sound Calvinist sentiment "[Both] the Old and New Testaments."
University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia (ostensibly founded 1740 but actually in 1749 by Benjamin Franklin and others as the Philadelphia Academy). The arms were adopted in 1932-33. The plates on the chevron refer to the arms of Penn (Argent on a fess Sable three plates) and the dolphin on the chief is from the arms used by Franklin.
Brown University, Providence, R.I. (founded 1764 as the College of Rhode Island). The arms date to 1833.
