Coat-of-Arms syle symbols used by RIT for the year of 1948

Description

World War II brought about an upsurge in American patriotism, and the RIT logo reflected that. The school went through various logos during the war, most featuring an eagle, others featuring an industrial backdrop. An interesting variant of the RIT logo appeared later in 1948, one that took inspiration from the Coat-of-Arms used by Great Britian. This logo was used solely for the year of 1948, and the reason for the change is unknown. After 1948, RIT reverted to using the industrial-themed logo up until 1956.
