Richard Haliburton was a famous traveler often wrote about his adventures. It is said that he died in a accident at sea while sailing a Chinese junk called the Sea Dragon. A model of the ship, planes, sketches, books, and trinkets he collected during his travels are located in the Rhodes College Barett Library Archives. The rest of his collection is located at the Princeton University Library. Haliburton Tower at Rhodes was dedicated after him. The bell tower that tolls every hour was donated by his father.
