Bell

1910

Photograph of the bell with "Zeke" and Miss Coit in front of the Old Curry building which is shown in background in the late 1910s. The Curry Building, located on College Avenue, opened in 1902. It was named in honor of Jabez Lamar Monroe Curry, who advocated for the establishment of the State Normal and Industrial School (now The University of North Carolina at Greensboro), in the early 1890s. The building was used as a training, or practice, school for future teachers until it burned in 1926.. In the early days of the University, the bell was used to call students to class and to other events. Originally the bell was known as “Farm Bell” and the “Prep” and it regulated every aspect of student life in the early years. It was first located near Main Building and Brick Dormitory. On January 21, 1904, Josephine Scott Hudson climbed the bell’s wooden frame and rang it to evacuate students from the Brick Dormitory during the fire. From 1922 until 1938, it was located in an area between South Spencer and Woman’s dormitories. In 1938, when electric bells were installed in all of the buildings, it was taken down and placed in storage. In 1953, in honor of their 30th Reunion, the Class of 1923 took steps to have the bell preserved and soon after it was again set up, without its clapper, at President McIver’s home site at Spring Garden Street and College Avenue. To commemorate the University’s 75th Anniversary, the student body of 1967 appropriated $15,000 to build Anniversary Plaza on the same site. The bell hung at that site from a brick arch designed by Charles Bell, Superintendent of Grounds from 1968 until 1987. The bell is now in storage and is brought out and rung on special occasions.
