The Cornell Chimes
by Ed McKeown
This comprehensive history of the Cornell Chimes and McGraw Towerópublished on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the towerócontains more than 50 archival photos and illustrations, anecdotes and memoirs. Beginning with James O'Neill, class of 1871, who was moved by the inaugural-day concert to petition President Andrew D. White for permission to play the bells, chimesmasters from throughout Cornell's history tell the story of the changing campus and the changing times.
