Builder Identification

Chicago, Illinois, 1934-1935.

Additional Notes

  • From the OHS PC Database, derived from A Guide to North American Organbuilders, revised edition, by David H. Fox (Organ Historical Society, 1997). -

    Temple & Howard succeeded the Coburn Organ Co. of Chicago in 1934 (Walter Coburn died in November, 1934). The partnership was active in Chicago, Illinois, 1934-1935; with Arthur R. Temple as principal. The firm was last listed in 1935; it was succeeded by the A. R. Temple firm.

    There are no instruments by Temple and Howard in the Organ Database. This may be because of the short time the firm was in business, or it may have been a service firm rather than builder.

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.
