Bobby Sager, Economics ’76, successful Massachusetts businessman turned international philanthropist, recently paid for the restoration and re-installation of the Park Street Church bell in Boston. For over 60 years, the peal of the bell, heard on the Common and around Downtown Crossing, was from a recording. The bell had not been rung since 1960 because its infrastructure within the church was too weak to support it. When Mr. Sager learned that the sounds he heard from his Tremont Street home were actually produced by a sound system, he decided to pay for the 200-year-old piece of Boston heritage to be repaired and reinstated. “It will wake people up to what’s going on in their day,” he said. “It’s just a beautiful thing.”
