Database Manager on July 28, 2011:

Identified through online information from Paul Lohman. -- Additions/Completion of original Skinner design; main part of the organ was historically restored by the Schantz Organ Company in 2011. Alterations by Eugene Doutt either did not occur or had been restored by 2009. Though it was noted that the organ had been placed in storage, it was never placed in storage and has always resided in the existing chambers. The previously "prepared" Solo Division was completed by Schantz in 2011. The Solo was placed in an enclosure above the Choir Division. The Tuba Mirabilis was previously installed unenclosed above the proscenium. Schantz built an enclosure above the proscenium for this stop. The console was previously situated on the main floor of the auditorium. It now is located on the stage, is moveable and has 3 disconnectable plug-in locations.
