Database Manager on July 30, 2013:

When Op. 1128 became available, Dr. Patrick Allen, an Eastman alum, arranged for the organbuilding firm of Lewis & Hitchcock to remove the organ and restore it in their Washington, D.C. shop. In 2006-07, the organ was reinstalled in Dr. Allen's duplex apartment at Grace Church, where he serves as Organist and Master of Choristers.
