The doctoral diploma of Sándor Görcs
The Hungarian Royal Veterinary Academy was raised to the rank of a college on 11th February in 1899, then the Hungarian Royal Veterinary College acquired the right to graduation in 1906.
The wording and decoration of doctoral diplomas changed several times from 1906. Most of them were written in Latin, but occasionally we can see Hungarian wordings, too. The decoration of diplomas is usually black-and-white, rarely coloured.
The restrainly decorated doctoral diploma of Sándor Görcs was made out on 25th May in 1924. It was signed by Mihály Berrár, Ferenc Hutyra and Ágoston Zimmermann.
