The President’s Medallion depicts the College’s coat of arms and the W&M cipher. The medallion was crafted by Charles Eugene (“Mike”) Stousland, Jr., class of 1941. Stousland was Chair of the Department of Architecture at Miami University of Ohio and also crafted jewelry and small sculpture in silver as a hobby. For many years he created jewelry featuring the William and Mary cipher for the Alumni Association to sell to raise funds for the organization.

Similar medallions were given to Prince Charles during his visit to the College in 1981 and Dean of Students J. Wilfred Lambert (class of 1927) when he retired.
