Olivet College carillon chimes once again
May 09, 2013

Thanks to the support and organization of trustee Dennis Daugherty ‘70, a new, state-of-the-art carillon from Schulmerich Company of Sellersville, Pa., was recently installed in Burrage Library and this week, the bells chimed on campus for the first time in decades.

Once an Olivet College fixture, the first carillon was installed in 1961 in the library’s tower and was then replaced by a newer carillon in the Upton Conservatory of Music in 1987, which has since fallen into a state of disrepair.

Daugherty organized the new carillon project so future generations of Olivet students could enjoy the chiming of the bells on campus. In addition, the new system features an emergency alert system.

For more information about the Olivet College carillon, contact Marty Jennings, director of alumni engagement, at (269) 749-7644 or mjennings@olivetcollege.edu.
