Database Manager on June 13, 2013:

This is a rebuild of an existing organ. Identified by William Dunklin, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- Installed rebuilt electro-pneumatic chests and a rebuilt detached console. Pipework and case from the 1916 Moller. The builder's plate says "Rebuilt and Improved by Harold Weaver, 1980." Mr. Weaver was one of the partners in A.W. Brandt Company.
