This entry describes an original installation of a new pipe organ.
Identified by James R. Stettner, listing conversations with this person as the source of the information: Current Cathedral organist, Donald Fellows.
According to emailed information from Donald Fellows, "The Kimball would have been from the late 1800's. It was removed from the building when the diocese sold the property. The organ was put in storage until the new cathedral was ready to receive it. It functioned into the 1950's."
