Carillon Concert For Lou Henry Hoover’s 150th Birthday

Sponsored by

This event is over.

Event Details:

We invite the campus community to enjoy a carillon concert in honor of Lou Henry Hoover and Women's History Month. The bells can be heard from anywhere near Hoover Tower.

Born March 29, 1874, Lou Henry Hoover's passion for learning and adventure inspired a lifetime of remarkable achievements in the areas of advocacy for women's rights, education, and athletics; children's welfare; humanitarian relief; environmental conservation; and diplomacy. She was the first female graduate of Geology at Stanford University, an early leader and advocate for the Girl Scouts of America, and she redefined the role of First Lady in the White House. 

The carillon concert will be performed by Stanford University carillonneur Timothy Zerlang and will begin at 12:15pm.

This event is presented in partnership with Stanford University Libraries and the Department of Earth & Planetary Sciences at the Doerr School of Sustainability. For more information on related exhibits, events, and activities in this series, visit
