Notes

  • Identified from factory documents and publications courtesy of Stephen Schnurr. (Database Manager. December 7, 2007)
  • Updated by Doug Lynch, who gave this as the source of the information: Worked at Hart's 1967-1970 while a student.
    This organ was installed when the funeral home was built about 1929. It has been maintained. As originally installed, it had an Artiste Player vertical console installed in the ministers room on the right side of the chapel. I was able to get the player working while there, but during a renovation in the early '70s, the player console was removed and no one was able to tell me what happened to it. I'll check next time I'm in Macon and update this and upload pictures. (Steven E. Lawson. June 22, 2018)
  • Updated by Doug Lynch, who maintains the organ. In addition Doug Lynch gave this as a source of information: Worked at Hart's 1967-1970.
    I just uploaded the original contract and specification for the organ. When I requested additional documentation from Moller in 1970 and asked about getting player rolls, I received the uploaded documents along with the original drawing for the organ installation dated 10-3-30. I also received the electrical wiring diagram for the Solo Player, dated 11/29/27. I no longer have a plate scanner large enough to scan these drawings. When I can get them scanned, I'll upload.
