Database Manager on January 08, 2015:

Updated through online information from Shawn P. Keith. -- Much pipework remains from the original Wm. Schuelke organ, but all has been rescaled and revoiced. There is evidence the Schuelke organ was rebuilt by another Milwaukee builder (Verlinden?) prior to the 1963 overhaul, but it is undocumented.
