Biography/History

After much debate about the matter of location, the Graduate College at Princeton University was completed in 1913, situated on a piece of land overlooking the golf course. Included as part of the final gothic design was a 173-foot tower, a national memorial to former U.S. President Grover Cleveland who was also chairman of the trustees' graduate school committee. The tower was silent until 1927, when the class of 1892 gave a set of carillon bells as a gift.
