New Carillon4
To Dominate
Music Center1
Tower Erected In Memory
iOf Ex-president Burton;
carillon Gift Of Baird
Dominating the proposed Univer-
sity Musical Center to be located at
the northern end of the Mall is
the Burton Memorial Tower housing
the Baird Carillon.,
Completed in December, 1936, the
Carillon is the third largest in the
world, according to Prof. Earl V.
Moore, director of the School of I
Music. With its 53 bells, the largest
of which, the Bourdon Bell, weighs 12
tons, the Michigan Carillon ranks be-
hind only that on the Riverside
Church in New York, which has 72
bells, the largest 20 tons, and that of
the 'University of Chicago Chapel
which also has 72 bells, largest 18
The Carillon was the gift of Charles
Baird, '95, who said, in presenting
the bells to President Ruthven at
the dedication exercises, Dec. 5, 1936:
From the time I entered this
University 46 years ago I have loved
it. It has been an inspiration to me
all my life. I feel that I cannot re-
pay the Uniyersity of Michigan for
what she has given me.
"All the friends of Dr. Burton, who
knew and loved him will rejoice ini
this realization of a dream of his,
frustrated by an untimely death."
The tower and Carillon are the
realization of a dream of Marion
Teroy Burton, president of the
'University who died in office, Feb. 18,
1925. The tower was financed
through contributions of alumni and
public-spirited citizens of Ann Arbor.
Although new to the Ann Arbor
scene, the Carillon is already old in
point oX service and, in some cases
rmusement, to the students and
townspeople of. Ann Arbor. The
same night that the final- bell was
raised in the uncompleted tower, local
jokers unofficially dedicated the
Carillon with a sustained one-bell
concert which aroused the citizenry
close around the tower. About two
weeks after dedication of the bells,
two students broke into the tower,
gave an impromptu concert, broke
three clavier pegs, were found guilty
on a drunk and disorderly charge,
fined $31.$5 apiece..
