Facts

  • While this building serves as a memorial carillon, it is primarily a conventional high-rise, and contains classrooms for the University of Michigan's school of music.
  • The Burton Memorial Tower honors Marion Leroy Burton, President of the University of Michigan from 1920 to 1925. It is constructed of a reinforced concrete shell faced with limestone over a plan 42 feet square. The design was greatly influenced by Eliel Saarinen, who had submitted an earlier scheme. At the top is the 100-ton, 67-bell Baird Carillon.
