Notes

  • Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ was installed in divided chamber at the front - Solo and Swell on the left, and Great and Choir on the right. The organ was dedicated by David Craighead. The 5-rank Antiphonal division was never added. The organ was removed beginning June 28, 1998 by Spokane, Washington Wicks representative Philip A. Larson, dba Washington Church Organs. It was placed into private storage wih plans for reinstallation at St. Luke's Lutheran in Spokane. It has suffered some subsequent fire damage. The extant nature of the damage and the resulting status of the organ are not yet documented. (Database Manager. June 18, 2006)
