Database Manager on May 10, 2008:

Updated through online information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ was in a single chamber at the front of the room with the console in a separate room on the right side of the chapel. The shutters were up high at ceiling level. Later, the organ had a Vox Humana added to it, and also a tenor C Aeoline on an electro-mechanical chest placed atop the upper walkboard. The chests were a duplex pitman type with two primaries. The five manual ranks were Diapason, Gedeckt, Salicional, Vox Celeste, and Oboe. The Pedal had a 44-pipe, 16'/8' Bourdon.
