*Links:

The University Website might show a photo that includes the chapel and tower.  There is a campus map which can locate the chapel precisely (but the maps are oriented toward the west, not the north).  The chapel main page has a night photo of the building and tower; there is an associated history page with a tower photo, and a tower page about the bells.

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