The Clock Collection was acquired through the generous donation of Mrs. Elizabeth Y. Thomas of Tucson, Arizona, in 1971. It consists of examples of fine art and rich craftsmanship that range from small and dainty to large three-piece sets. The clocks boast French, German, Swiss, and Austrian origins, as well as American heritage of the 19th and 20th centuries. They are intricately carved, many displaying figurines. The Clock Collection is another treasure preserved at APU that records for us a unique facet of European and American history.
