Pipe-Chat:

"A.G. & J.P. Hunter were in Philadelphia in the 1860's and 1870's. By 1880 this firm had morphed into J.P. Hunter & Sons. Bernard Mudler was also active as an organbuilder in Philadelphia from about 1870 onwards. The Mudler-Hunter firm was incorporated in 1921 and seems to have resulted from a merger of these two previous firms."
