Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- This was a rebuild of the existing organ which was installed by an unknown person or firm after 1931, and was a conglomeration of Estey Opus 2784, 1929 and a Möller of unknown provenance. It also contained a Robert Morton Oboe Horn. Information from the Eugene M. Nye notebooks and Balcom and Vaughan files.
