Additional Notes

  • From the OHS PC Database, derived from A Guide to North American Organbuilders, by David H. Fox (Richmond, Va.: Organ Historical Society, 1991; rev. ed., 1997, with corrected information). [In the 1991 edition of Fox’s Guide, the last name is spelled Brueu, but the entry is placed between the entries for Brewer, Charles, and Brick, C.H. In the 1997 edition of Fox’s Guide, the spelling has been corrected to Breu, but the order of entries is unchanged. David L. Junchen, Encyclopedia of the American Theatre Organ, vol. 1 (Pasadena, Calif.: Showcase Publications, 1985), 327, reproduces a photograph taken in January 1930 that shows some of the team responsible for building the Midmer-Losh organ in the Convention Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey; “H. Breu? is in the center row.—Ed.] —

    With Midmer-Losh firm of Merrick, New York, 1930.

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.
