Notes

  • Identified through on-line information from Chad Boorsma. -- The organ was dedicated on April 17, 1958, and was purchased for $24,350. The organist for the dedication concert was Mrs. Blanche V. Packee. The windchests and console are Verlinden's work, but many of the pipes appear to be reused from a different instrument. The pipes -- in sound, appearance, and stop name -- resemble those from the early 1900s. The Great principal chorus is exposed; the rest of the Great and the Choir are under expression together in the center chamber. The Swell is also in the center section, but is under separate expression. (Database Manager. August 23, 2009)
