Dahl, and is reported to have been part of an arrangement between Glenn White and David Dahl for David joining Olympic Organ Builders. In 1982, Mr. Dahl later acquired a new II-manual, 11-rank organ built by Fritts & Richards as their Opus 2-b at which time he sold the Olympic organ to Grace Lutheran Church for $21,000.00. It was slightly modified and then installed by Paul Fritts. The organ is free-standing and housed in a case of teak veneer with an attached keydesk. There are no couplers. Manual I, Manual II, and the Pedal all share one 154 channel chest. The Manual II 8' Quintadena borrows its bottom 10 notes from the Manual I 8' Holzgedackt. The Manual I 4' Rohrflute has 17 pipes, notes 7 - 23, in the center section of the façade. The Pedal 8' Gedackt has 11 pipes, notes 3 thru 13, in the side towers of the façade. The twelfth pipe is a dummy. Stops are registered by means of small, wooden levers in horizontal slots centered in three rows of three stops each over the manuals. When a lever is positioned on the left side of the slot, the stop is off. The pitch of each stop is engraved into the square, flat end of each lever. The stop names are engraved on small wooden plates beneath each lever/slot. The layout is as follows: 8' Quintadena Tremolo 2' Flute 8' Holzgedackt 2' Principal 4' Rohrflute 4' Flachflute 8' Gedackt 16 Sordun Sources: Olympic opus list; JRS; extant organ [Received from James R.
