Campanile, Iowa State College, Ames, Iowa

Primary tabs

Construction of the Campanile was completed in 1898 in memoriam of Margaret MacDonald Stanton, first dean of women, and the first bells were placed in the Campanile in 1899. Later in 1920, when Mrs. Stanton's husband, Edgar W. Stanton, 4-time acting president of Iowa State University, died, the university installed a musical instrument in the structure known as the Edgar W. and Margaret MacDonald Stanton Memorial Carillon.
