Summary of bellfounders' contributions
to traditional carillons
in North America

The tables on this page summarize the contributions of various bellfounders to the extant traditional carillons in this region.  (Instruments degraded from traditional to non-traditional are not included.)  Those contributions are detailed on the corresponding index page for this region, where they are listed in order for each foundry by year of installation.

The first table shows the number of instruments for which each founder made any bells or replaced the keyboard, according to the nature of the work done.  The second table shows the number of bells installed in the same stages of work.  Explanations and caveats follow the tables.
