Denny, George Hutcheson, 1870-1955

Description

Denny Chimes, on the Quad at the University of Alabama, was built in 1929 to honor longtime University of Alabama President George H. Denny, who served as the president from 1911-1936 and then briefly in 1942.

Money was raised by students to build the tower to honor Dr. Denny and it was dedicated on May 27, 1929 with Alabama Gov. Bibb Graves in attendance.

Ouita Livingston, 98 ( in 2016), says her father, George Johnson, worked for Skinner Contractors, the company that built the structure. She remembers him talking about how difficult it was to build the stairs inside the chimes.
