*Links:

The University Website has an illustrated history of the relocation of these bells from the Spittelwiesen of the Bergakademie (where they had resided since 1956) to a new freestanding tower, with new controls in the foyer between Horst Luther auditorium and the Institute of Organic Chemistry.  Unfortunately there is no photo of their original location.

A German-language article about the city mentions the Bergakademie but has no references or details.

A German-language article about the University has historic photos of the building but says nothing about these bells.

The University Website also says nothing about these bells.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Bochumer Verein bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
