The Shield was not published during the 1882-1883 academic year, and Volume 4 would not start up again until April of 1883. With the publishing of the April 1882 issue, the original Shield came to an end, no longer sustainable for its founding publishers, who recognized that they would drive themselves into debt for a magazine that was not generating sufficient subscription revenue. In April of 1883, the magazine was restarted, this time sponsored by the Grand Chapter and more sustainable, as originally hoped by the two men who brought it to life in 1879.
