2009 Old Main Open House 004

Up on the fourth floor of Old Main, "mischievous professor" Brett Kesselman explains to tour participants how he stole the clapper from the bell in the Old Main tower so it wouldn't wake him up at 5 a.m. each day. His story stems from the discovery of a bell clapper inside the wall of an old faculty house on campus when it was demolished. Students long had been blamed for stealing it, but the discovery altered the theory on the true identity of the culprit.
