Database Manager on July 04, 2014:

Updated through online information from John Speller. -- Much of the pipework from this organ was incorporated into later instruments. There is some doubt, however, whether anything other than the Sanctuary Organ was ever installed.

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- The main organ was installed in the rear gallery. A 2-manual division was placed in the sanctuary behind the main altar. The organ had twin 4-manual consoles. There was a Celestial division in the dome. The organ was dedicated August 25, 1915. It was replaced in 1946 by a new Kilgen, retaining 14 stops from the 1915 instrument.
