Index to tower tube chimes by Deagan

The J.C.Deagan Company of Chicago, now closed, sold approximately 440 tower chimes made of tubular bronze bells from about 1917 to 1958.  The vast majority went to the USA or Canada, though a very small number went overseas.  See the bottom of this page for additional historical notes on the origin and development of this company.

Those containing at least 8 notes are listed here in order by year of installation or completion (unknown first); if expanded by Deagan, then an entry appears at both (or all) years.

Instruments which have been relocated appear with their present location but original date of manufacture.  Follow the link to the site data page to find the original location.

Instruments which no longer exist have the year in parentheses, and the link is to an entry in a page of brief descriptions of such sites, rather than to a single page dedicated to the site.

Historical Notes and Links:

John Calhoun Deagan (1853-1934) was a multi-talented man, who is best known for his production of tuned percussion instruments of many kinds.  A brief history of the tower chime production of the J.C.Deagan Company is given in our page about tubular bells.  That page also shows how Deagan's work in this field fits into the entire history of tubular tower chimes in North America.

The names of Deagan's principal installers of tower chimes are known.  The work of Roy Lofink (1897-1960) is best known, because he kept a logbook of his work; it was inherited by his grandson, who shared its contents with the compiler of this page.  That logbook mentions other installers of Deagan tower chimes, who were Clarence J. "Jack" Gercken, Fred B. Little, and Charles J. Lustig (1887-19??).

A few Deagan tower chimes with fewer than 8 notes:

A biographical sketch of J.C.Deagan can be found at the Deagan Resource.  The majority of that Website covers Deagan's hand-played percussion instruments; there is very little information about Deagan's tubular tower chimes or tubular organ chimes, all of which had electric actions..
