    G. N. Bucklin was with Estey Organ Co. of Brattleboro, Vermont, in Maine. He had been with the firm for 33 years by 1930. 1 He received a curious mention in The Music Trades Review of August, 1904: "George N. Bucklin, of the Estey pipe organ department, left for Maine on Thursday last on the steamer "Grecian." 2 Since Brattleboro is landlocked, it is left to speculation from which port he departed.

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.
