  • Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- This was likely a "Fuga" model, with Diapason, Gedeckt, and Salicional. The organ was moved to the new [present] church, and replaced there in 1966 with a new Aeolian-Skinner. There is an older Wicks "Fuga" at Whitworth College in Spokane, and that may be this instrument. (Database Manager. April 25, 2008)
