Database Manager on February 15, 2014:

Installed on lease in 1907; due to the Exposition's remote location, it closed seven months after the organ was installed and the land was developed as the Norfolk Naval Base; Austin moved the organ as Op. 211 to the Brooklyn Academy of Music Concert Hall in early 1908.
