*Links:

The college Website mentions the "Deal Carillon" in various PDFs, but a former descriptive page has vanished.  A page of Sights and Sounds has an unidentified photo of a building with belfry, but it isn't the Library.  The campus map has a page about the Library (with a photo of the bell tower) but it doesn't mention the bells.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the McShane bellfoundry.
