Additional Notes

  • Note from the OHS PC Database, derived from A Guide to North American Organbuilders, by David H. Fox (Organ Historical Society, rev. ed., 1997). Edited for the revised OHS Online Database website, 2017. —

    Honorius Bedard,(Bédard) was with the Casavant firm of Saint-Hyacinthe, Québec, Canada, in 1903*, and still with the firm, 1905.**

    *In her list of employees (pages 735–760), Jeanne D'Aigle gives the "date d'entrée ou de depart" (hiring or ending date); in a separate list (pages 731–733), she specifies for some employees that this is the date of death. —Ed.
    **Page number was not noted in the source, but the 1905 date apparently comes from the first souvenir photos, 1905, pages 731-733. —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.
