The clock was installed as a memorial gift to the late professor Charles Billings, who had taught for almost 50 years between his time at Troy Conference Academy and Green Mountain College. The memorial was funded by donations from alumni of both Troy Conference Academy and Green Mountain College; graduation dates of those alumni ranged from the years 1876 - 1939.
