    NOTES
    The organ was originally built for St. Bernadette's R.C. Church in Burien/Seattle and
    was installed there by Glen White of Olympic Organ Builders. It is free-standing and
    encased with a detached console. The 5-sectional façade contains notes 1-39 of the
    Hauptwerk 8' Principal arranged: 7 – 10 – 5 - 10 – 7.
    
    The Bosch was replaced at St. Bernadette's with an electronic organ and was subsequently
    sold to University Temple United Methodist Church in Seattle. It was removed from St. Bernadette's 
    and re-erected in Sander Chapel at University Temple United Methodist Church in 2003. It is 
    installed in the front, left corner of the chapel
    and replaced a former pipe organ which was a conglomerate instrument once installed in
    the Seattle residence of C.M. “Sandy” Balcom – founder of Balcom and Vaughan Pipe Organs
    of Seattle, Washington. That organ was purchased by the Pipe Organ Foundation of Mercer
    Island, Washington under the direction of Dr. Carl Dodrill, and was re-installed at
    Covenant Presbyterian Church in Issaquah, Washington.
