    John Atwood, a botanist, worked at the Fisk shop in the 70's where he learned organbuilding. He worked at the David Moore shop in the 70's, left for botanical work, and has since returned to work building wood pipes, doing restoration work and general organbuilding. Atwood is a church organist, and does organ tuning and voicing at the shop.

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.
