USS Arizona Bell

Images of the USS Arizona battleship bell in the University of Arizona Student Union bell tower: in one image, four smiling young women ring the bell in the bell tower. The second image depicts the bell on its own.

The bell from the USS Arizona battleship is rung by four students in the bell tower of the University of Arizona Student Union. The bell was saved from salvage due to efforts by UA alumnus and WWII veteran Bill Bowers.
