Brewster Denny ringing the Denny Bell in 2011

He’s done it every year for 51 years, and tomorrow he’ll do it again. To celebrate Homecoming, Professor Emeritus Brewster Denny, ’45, will ring the bell at Denny Hall at 9 a.m. on Saturday, Oct. 27.

The bell, one of the sole surviving remnants of the UW’s downtown campus, was cast in 1859 and is rung only once a year, for Homecoming. Brewster Denny gets around in a wheelchair now, so a rope is run down the narrow stairs from the belfry to where he and his family can reach it.
