Notes

  • Wurlitzer "Style 260"
    Factory date: December 30, 1921
    Originally installed in Grauman's Egyptian Theatre, Hollywood, California. In 1956, the organ was sold to Harvey Heck, Tarzana, California, who enlarged the organ and added the console from opus 402 (Missouri Theatre, St. Louis, Missouri). In 1972, the organ was sold to William P. Brown and installed in his Organ Stop Pizza (#1) restaurant in Phoenix, Arizona. In 1984, Brown retired from the restaurant business and sold the property; the developer razed the restaurant and sold the organ to Jim Krughoff who installed it in his residence in Downers Grove, Illinois. Krughoff has enlarged the organ to 4/33. (Steven E. Lawson. August 17, 2016)
