Jim Stettner on November 24, 2021:

This entry has been the source of some confusion. The entry for this instrument on the Moller opus list gives the location as Capital University, Div Chapel. But the organ has always been in the Chapel of the seminary across the street. A review of the history of the school and seminary on the school website 'History' page reveals, "From 1850 to 1959, the Evangelical Lutheran Theological Seminary was part of Capital University."
