Database Manager on November 13, 2018:

Apparently this was considered a Skinner installation, as per the church website, and not Aeolian-Skinner; also, it's not included in the mid-1960's booklet that contains the list of all Aeolian-Skinner installations; Op. 889 was dispersed when it was replaced in 1964 by the relocation to the church of 3/30 Aeolian-Skinner Op. 969 from St. Thomas Episcopal Church, Whitemarsh, Pennsylvania; Op. 969 was removed in 1964 when the choir was moved to the rear; a 2/37 Taylor & Boody was installed on the rear floor level with the choir in 1992.
