Notes

  • Identified through information adapted from E. M. Skinner/Aeolian-Skinner Opus List, by Sand Lawn and Allen Kinzey (Organ Historical Society, 1997), and included here through the kind permission of Sand Lawn:
    Addition in 1938, #422-A of Aeoline; destroyed by fire in 1956. (Database Manager. January 18, 2006)
  • Updated through information from Rick Maryman: "This organ has been moved to The Presbyterian Church, Dover, Delaware. FWIW, it has been rebuilt with minor alterations (which are reversible so that the organ could be made 100 % as it was shipped from the factory)." (James Cook. September 26, 2008)
