    Elias Chicoine was still alive in 1958, when he appeared in a photograph taken in that year. It is unclear whether he was still active as an employee of Casavant Frères or had retired by then.

Some of our entries are names that might never appear on a nameplate or nameboard.
On the other hand, there are both individuals and firms who are responsible for conserving historic organs through location, or preserving the usefulness of pipe organs through rebuilding or making modifications to existing instruments. In these cases, we are proud to acknowledge their contributions to the ongoing artistic tradition of the pipe organ in America through individual entries in our online database.
