Edgar W. and Margaret MacDonald Stanton Memorial Carillon


Throughout the twentieth century, the Bells of Iowa State have sounded across campus. Donated by one of the university's first graduates, the bells initially rang in 1899. Since then, they have become an Iowa State University tradition, remembered with affection by both alumni and campus visitors.
