    Information from Conversation with William Kuhlman, Professor Emeritus of Organ at Luther College in Decorah IA: "The Schlicker was delivered to Luther College in May of 1969 and accepted by the renowned choir director, Weston Noble. It served as Luther College's main organ (in the Norby House) until the Hendrickson Pipe Organ was installed in the Koren Library in 1971. Sometime thereafter another pipe organ was acquired and this organ was sold to Grace Episcopal Church in Decorah, replacing an aged Estey Harmonium." (Thurlow Weed. May 20, 2019)
