George's message reminded me that Fireworks can pick up a color from
anywhere on your screen and report its hex value. This allowed me to check
colors in the PDF file directly, without the separate screen capture and
conversion to BMP.
Going through the document shows the following colors:
Page 1, full color background #004f39
Page 26, reference color swatch #004f39
Pages 39-41, all three MSU marks, #004f39
Page 42 upper S logo #004f39
Page 42 lower S logo #1a453b (almost identical to #18453b)
If we assume that #18453b is really the correct color, then it seems as
though whoever created our "branding manual" used the wrong colors in most
places. It looks as though they need to redo the manual and replace all the
greens with the one used in the lower S logo on page 42.

Plug in Pantone 567 in Photoshop. The equivalent RGB is 18453B.
For now, I'm assuming the colour block in PDF (pg 26) is incorrect,
but the numeric values (pg 26, pg 38) are correct.
