Database Manager on July 05, 2014:

Updated through online information from David Pickering. -- The organ's stoplist has been brought back to its original state with the removal of the Spitzflöte extensions in both the Great and Pedal. Quimby Pipe Organs, the curators of this organ, releathered the organ, cleaned and regulated the reeds, and undertook other minor mechanical repairs from 2013-2014. This organ is one of the last surviving examples of James Jamison's work that remains in original condition.

Database Manager on February 22, 2009:

Updated through information posted to PIPORG-L by David Pickering: -- "From what Mary Ellen Sutton, Professor of Organ at Kansas State University, has told me, the work in 2008 consisted of converting the key and combination action to solid state, adding the 32' electronic extension of the 32' Spitzflöte, as well as making the 4' Spitzflöte available on the Great, but not adding any extra pipes for the top octave."
