Database Manager on December 31, 2009:

Identified through on-line information from Brent Elwood Erstad. -- Rodgers modified the Wicks to include a digital console and pipe combination in 2007, utilizing most of the Wicks organ-which itself contained some of the earlier Skinner. The central portion of the case remains from the original Richard Bridge organ of 1733, gift of George Berkeley, Bishop of Cloyne.
