Database Manager on February 10, 2008:

Updated through online information from James A. Kriewald, PhD. -- The organ really was totally built by Christoph Linde and Richard Howell at the Möller Organ Plant. To call it a "Möller Organ" is very misleading. It is in a beautiful unstained solid cherry case.
