Database Manager on April 29, 2007:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ was installed in a chamber in the front, left corner of the church. Two banks of expression shutters allowed for tonal egress into the sanctuary at the front, and across a hallway into a left-side choir gallery where the console was placed. The expression shutters were removed and replaced at least twice at the changing whims of organists. And the console was pivoted once but remained essentially in fixed position, left. The organ was removed for St. Andrew's by Jim Stettner and was for sale. But it is believed to have ultimately been taken in-trade by Bond when the new tracker was installed in 2001. Its subsequent disposition is unknown.
