I’m trying to compile a list of arms designed by the great heraldic artist Pierre de Chaignon la Rose, who was responsible for a large number of academic and ecclesiastical arms from about 1900 until about 1940.  Here’s what I have so far and I wonder if anyone can contribute additional arms with blazons (and pictures if available) or correct any mistakes below.

For Harvard:  Graduate Schools of Arts and Sciences, Business, Design, Dental Medicine, Divinity, Education, Engineering, Law, Medicine, Public Health, and Government; Radcliffe College and Radcliffe Graduate School; Adams, Dudley, Dunster, and Kirkland Houses; Signet Society and Faculty Club

 

Other Colleges and Universities:  Catholic, Chicago, Dominican, Duquesne, Emmanuel, Loras, Notre Dame, Rice, St. Ambrose, St. Anselm, Timothy Dwight College (Yale)

 

Roman Catholic Sees:  Fall River, Hartford, Milwaukee, Nashville, Natchez, Ogdensburg, Owensboro, Peoria, Pittsburgh, Portland (ME), Rochester, Wilmington

 

Other Catholic Institutions:  Society of St. Joseph of the Sacred Heart, Sisters of St. Joseph (Boston), St. Mary Basilica (Minneapolis), Father Ryan HS and St. Cecilia Academy (Nashville), Lancaster Catholic HS (Lancaster, PA), Portsmouth Abbey

 

Protestant Episcopal Sees:  Cuba, Harrisburg (now Central Pennsylvania), Kansas City, Lexington, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, New Hampshire, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Pittsburgh (revised previous design), Quincy (IL), Rhode Island, Springfield (IL), Washington, West Missouri

Roman Catholic Sees: Baltimore, Richmond, Charleston, Savannah (original arms which were later changed), St. Augustine, Raleigh, Abbey Nullius of Belmont, N.C. (later suppressed but still used by Belmont Abbey College), Burlington, Springfield (MA), Manchester, Providence, Sacramento, Tulsa, Seattle, Helena, San Francisco, Toledo, Alexandria, Syracuse, Santa Fe, Cleveland, Fresno (when it was Monterey and Fresno) and Kansas City when it was the diocese of Leavenworth. The arms have been changed.

Other Colleges and Universities: Belmont Abbey College

 

NB: he modified the arms of Duquesne from the original.

For Savannah, I assume that would be what McCarthy shows as the original arms (Argent a cross between four crosses couped Gules)?

Thanks very much for these.  I have an idea that someone should put together a La Rose armorial.  His work was truly brilliant.

He designed the coat of arms that appears over the main entrance to the Burlington, Vt., City Hall. The arms as currently painted are Azure* a stag’s head caboshed a fleur-de-lis between the attires Or a chief dancetty Argent. (*As painted, the blue is so light that I consider to be Bleu celeste, which would also match the shade of blue currently used in the city’s flag.) According to contemporary records, Mr. la Rose blazoned them as Vert a stag’s head caboshed silver the attires gold and between them a fleur-de-lis also gold a chief dancetty of two points and two half points silver. To show how the painting of the arms might have changed, Howard Chapin blazoned the arms as Vert a stag’s head caboshed tenne armed Or a fleur-de-lis between the antlers of the last a chief dancetty Argent.

The arms of the diocese of Burlington are blazoned by Brassard as Vert a stag’s head cashoed between the attires a cross fleur-de-lis Or a chief dancetty of the same.

 

To my knowledge, the arms are not used by the City for any purpose, either the city seal being used in their place or a logo showing the view of Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks that one sees from Burlington’s hilltop. The latter logo is derived from that used in the city’s wayfinding system.

Too bad the city doesn’t make use of them; they sound beautiful—better in the original than in the repainted versions.  I’d point out that painting the field any color but green spoils the cant—the dancetty line in chief defines the field as green mountains—>Vermont.

I would blazon the diocesan arms as "Vert a stag’s head caboshed, between the antlers a cross fleuretty, and a chief indented Or."

Couldn’t agree more. I forgot to mention earlier that Brassard credits LaRose as the designer of the diocesan arms.
