Database Manager on August 23, 2011:

Updated through online information from Lucy Dechene. -- I have been working with people at St. Joseph's for moving the Immaculate Conception Casavant. St. Joseph's has no pipe organ at this time and has not had one since 1969. My understanding is they had a Wurlitzer before 1969. So the Hook had to have been removed before that.
