    *The editor has attempted to harmonize the related articles. The primary discrepancy is the start date and location for Hartman-Beaty Organ Co. This entry for Hartman-Beaty states that the company was started in Brooklyn, New York in 1963 and relocated to Englewood, New Jersey in 1964, the sources are identical to the entry for David Beaty. The entry for Richard Hartman puts the start date as 1963 in Englewood with David Beaty as the source. The entry for David Beaty gives the date as 1962 in Englewood presumably with David Beaty as the author of the letter to David Fox. –Ed.
