In 1961, during construction of Caldwell Chapel, designed by Fred Louis of the architectural firm of Louis & Henry, a fire· put plans for a pipe organ on hold. The generous gift of Roger Wood Puckett in 1984 made the organ possible, and it was named in honor of the donor. The instrument was dedicated with a recital by Larry Smith on 17 November 1985; Melvin Dickinson, consultant to the Seminary for the organ project, gave an all-Bach recital on 1 December 1985.
