Notes

  • This entry describes an original installation of a new pipe organ. Identified by Steven E. Lawson, using information found in Factory Specification. -- Chests and pipes of the Swell Organ from Op. 1779 (1930) in the Barbizon-Plaza Hotel, NYC, were used in the Swell of Op. 1794. (Database Manager. July 26, 2013)
  • The organ in the Lounge on the third floor was an Aeolian Company Style 151 that would normally be played by a three manual console. For this installation the console was omitted but the organ was playable with Duo-Art Records from a Concertola Cabinet permitting the playing of a concert of ten selections. By means of electrical amplification the tone of this division when played with Duo-Art Records can be heard in the Auditorium as an Echo or Antiphonal Organ. (Jeff Scofield. December 2, 2019)
