*Links:

On the University Website, there are several photos of the tower at the main entrance to the campus; use the Search facility (for "bell tower") to find them.  The Virtual Tour has a zoomable photo of the tower, and an ordinary photo can be found on the Directions page.  But there appears to be no textual history or description of the bells or tower.

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