This essay, published in the 1899 Spinster, provides historical background about the bell that was on the premises in 1842. It was written by W. H. Pleasants, Professor of Latin, 1852-1912, and brother-in-law of Hollins founder Charles Lewis Cocke. The old bell now resides in the university archives.
