Database Manager on December 03, 2005:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ was sold to Mrs. Joan Ruud of Mercer Island in 19?? for $10,000.00. She was never able to have the organ installed in her home, and it was in storage in Seattle. In 1993, she was forced to abandon the organ, and gave it back to Balcom and Vaughan. It was removed from the storage warehouse on Western Avenue in February, 1993. The pipes and console were gradually sold or utilized in other projects.
