I'd like to know more about the Harvard Divinity School shield.

The Harvard Divinity School shield was designed by Pierre de Chaignon la Rose.  La Rose designed shields for each of the Harvard University graduate schools for the 1936 Harvard Tercentenary.

See Mason Hammond, “A Harvard Armory: Part I,” Harvard Library Bulletin, volume XXIX, Number 3 (July 1981), p. 261-297.

The Divinity shield is described on page 278.
