Database Manager on March 25, 2009:

Updated through online information from Rev. C. Ralph Mills. -- During a study in 1989 for the 75th anniversary at 1st UMC, we found no records of the Skinner Organ. The only thing we found out is that the Skinner was given in memory of one of the presidents of UVa. This organ was replaced by a Möller Organ, which was then replaced 1989 by a 3M, 38Rk Schantz Organ.
