Additional Notes

  • Note from the OHS PC Database, derived from A Guide to North American Organbuilders, by David H. Fox (Richmond, Va., Organ Historical Society, 1991). —

    Son of George G. Hook; with E. & G.G. Hook* of Boston, Massachusetts, draftsman; died 1926.

    *If Frederick Hook started with the firm when it was still E. & G.G. Hook, it would have been prior to 1872. From the brief reference in Fox's Guide, it cannot be determined if he remained after the firm became E. & G.G. Hook & Hastings. —Ed.

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.
