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 of 32' reed to Opus 1005 (1940). (Database Manager. May 7, 2007)
  • The organ in the Auditorium of Hunter College was a rebuild and enlargement of the Skinner Organ Co. organ, Op. 349 (1922), formerly located in Skinner's New York studio on Fifth Avenue. Due to extensive damage the organ is no longer playable, but the console is extant under a stage extension. (Steven E. Lawson. February 27, 2017)
