UCR Bell Tower

Bor-Kai H.
In the center of the main campus stands the UCR Carillon Bell Tower, one of only four in California. It was given as a gift by former UC regent Philip Boyd and his wife Dorothy. The dedication of the carillon and tower took place on October 2, 1966. Designed by A. Quincy Jones - Jones & Emmons of Los Angeles, the tower is 161 feet (49 m) tall and contains 48 bells, cast in France. The bells cover four chromatic octaves and weigh from 28 to 5,091 pounds. Live performances generally occur Mondays at noon during the academic year, with occasional performances scheduled on the weekends. #A_Quincy_Jones #Bell #California #Carillon #JonesEmmons #Los_Angeles #Philip_Boyd #Riverside #Tower #UCR #University
