Updated by Laurence [Larry] Leonard, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- The only addition was an 8 ft trumpet to place on the rack board where a 16 ft bdn had been planned but never installed. The stop is divided, bass of 12 pipes and treble of 49 pipes. This was done by Geo. Bozeman about 1979[?]
