Database Manager on February 13, 2015:

Updated by Robert Huddleston, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- I was the organist in 1967 when the organ was installed, and also when the one-manual-and-pedal chapel organ was bought, and which functioned as the only organ for two or three years while waiting for the big one.
