Database Manager on January 21, 2010:

Updated through online information from JT Ellenberger. -- Organ has a big green Kinetic Blower of the early 20th c. Möller variety. Instrument has not been played in living memory. I've got some pictures, if I can find them. It looks like a little gem, but the Masons and the Shriners don't really know who owns the instrument, so they say they can't sell it.
