From the OHS PC Database Builders Listing editor, Mar 7, 2016 -

Kinzey-Angerstein was a partnership of Allen B. Kinzey and Daniel (Dan) L. Angerstein in Wrentham, Massachusetts, from 1971 until 1981. Both men were with the Aeolian-Skinner Organ Co. of Boston, MA prior to its closing. The two established a small firm, building tracker action instruments and servicing and rebuilding electro-pneumatic ones, primarily those built by Aeolian-Skinner. Most of their work was in the New England area, but they worked on Aeolian-Skinner organs around the country. They also built three new instruments in Gainesville, Florida and rebuilt the Schantz organ at the First Presbyterian Church there.1

After the partnership closed, Kinzey established Nicholas-Bradford Organ Co of Wrentham, MA in conjunction with Joseph N. Deptula, Jr. in 1981.2 Angerstein established Angerstein & Associates of Stoughton, in 1983.3
