The Burgon Society, concerned with academic dress, should not be confused with the Dean Burgon Society, concerned with the advocacy of the King-James-Only Movement. They are separate organizations.

The Burgon Society was founded in 2000 for the study and promotion of academical dress, to preserve its history, and to advise film and television companies and interested others in its correct usage. The President of the society is the organist John Birch, MA (Sus), DMus (Lambeth), FRCM, FRCO(CHM), LRAM, FRSA, FBS.

The society is named after John William Burgon (1813-1888) from whom the Burgon shaped academic hood takes its name. The Burgon Hood is depicted in profile in the society's emblem, surrounded by Bishop Andrewes caps.

The society includes the president, eleven council members, and numerous patrons, fellows, subscribing members and corporate members. Membership is open to all who support the aims of the society. Fellowship (FBS) may be awarded to members upon supplication after submission of substantial work on the study of academical dress.
