      Hello, bell enthusiasts! It seems you have a lovely forum here.

      I’m writing because as a periodic Wikipedia editor, I happened to notice today that there was no article on the general concept of clock chimes – the Westminster quarters, Whittington quarters, etc. So I created one!

      It’s here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Clock_chimes

      I thought that you might enjoy adding some of your rich knowledge to this page. In particular, I note that there are a number of books on your site’s reading materials page that might discuss the origin, history and development of clock chimes – but I don’t have access to most of them. If you do, you might consider adding some content to the page!

      If you have any questions about adding content to Wikipedia, or citing it once there, please do let me know and I’ll be happy to help.

      I should add that I understand that this is not a clock forum, and that it focuses on a variety of bells, not just those used in a carillon, etc etc. Still, though, I thought this might be of interest.

      Thanks again –

      Thank you for the suggestion. Perhaps you could get collectors interested in clock chimes by helping to educate us about them! I suspect an article about them and their history and use would be welcomed by the editor of our bi-monthly magazine, The Bell Tower. You can contact the editor at mgrismere@cinci.rr.com.

      Thanks for your consideration!
