The university Website has a history page with photos of the tower, which recounts changes in the building; but this appears to be the only mention of the carillon.

A July 1951 newspaper article, continued here,  here  and here, reported the planned installation at Lander College of a 37-bell Vanbergen carillon that had recently been displayed at the Fourth International Trade Fair in Toronto.  Apparently, financing could not be arranged, and that carillon was eventually removed.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the Paccard bellfoundry, in this region and in the world.
