Since the Dedication of the River Campus in 1930, the Hopeman Memorial bells have sounded out over the campus and adjacent Rochester neighborhoods.  This exhibit features highlights of the history of the Hopeman bells.  Viewers will see the original keyboard used to sound the Chime, William Ehrich’s Bellman’s Society nameplate holder, an architectural drawing of the Tower with an explanation of how the Carillon works and much else.  Doris Aman, UR Carillon Society, and the University Archives collaborated to produce the exhibit. 


"The Builder’s Bells: The Hopeman Memorial Chime and Carillon" will be on exhibit in the Great Hall of the Rush Rhees Library and will continue until September 30, 2012.


The exhibit will be available for viewing during normal Rush Rhees Library hours.
