*Links:

On the college Website, the campus virtual tour offers a controllable panorama of the Campanile.  A page about the Campanile has two photos and a description of the bells (though "cast in Europe and chromatically tuned in the United States" seems highly unlikely).  There is no directory of faculty and staff.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Petit & Fritsen bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
