Purdue Bell Tower
On January 19, 1894, Purdue University dedicated
Heavilon Hall, an engineering laboratory with a tower that soared above
the modest skyline of the fledgling campus. Four days later, the structure lay in ruins,
destroyed by explosion and fire. Amid the shock and tears of the disaster, Purdue
President James Smart issued a rallying cry that crystallized the spirit of the University:
"That tower shall go up one brick higher!"
It did go up again - nine bricks higher, according to legend - and the rebuilt
Heavilon Hall and tower remained a campus landmark until they were razed in 1956.
The four bells from the rebuilt tower, which tolled the hours and class times for
generations of Purdue students, fell silent for almost 40 years. The Heavilon Hall
bells now ring again in the belfry above, reminding all who hear their joyous
peals that our University will ever strive to build "one brick higher."


Made possible with a leadership gift from the class of 1948.

Quote of the moment
We owe it, therefore, to candor and to the amicable relations existing between the United States and those powers to declare that we should consider any attempt on their part to extend their system to any portion of this hemisphere as dangerous to our peace and safety. With the existing colonies or dependencies of any European power we have not interfered and shall not interfere. But with the Governments who have declared their independence and maintain it, and whose independence we have, on great consideration and on just principles, acknowledged, we could not view any interposition for the purpose of oppressing them, or controlling in any other manner their destiny, by any European power in any other light than as the manifestation of an unfriendly disposition toward the United States.
~ James Monroe (1758–1831), U.S. president. seventh annual message to Congress, Dec. 2, 1823. The Monroe Doctrine.

The Monroe Doctrine was formulated with the help of John Quincy Adams and formed the basis of U.S. foreign policy in the ambit of central and South America. Theodore Roosevelt’s corollary in 1904 that disturbances in Latin America might compel U.S. intervention to preempt European involvement was invoked by presidents Taft and Wilson to justify operations in the Caribbean. ~
