    With Aeolian-Votey* firm of New York City, New York, 1927, sales.

    *It is unsure what was meant here: Aeolian-Votey was located in Detroit, Michigan and Garwood, New Jersey, but not in New York City. The Aeolian Co. was located in New York City, 1877–1899 prior to its merger with the Votey Organ Co. of Detroit, Michigan, later relocating to Garwood, New Jersey. The company was reorganized as Aeolian-Votey of Garwood in 1927. Presumably, Hyman was the New York representative of Aeolian-Votey of Garwood, New Jersey. —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.
