Database Manager on December 21, 2019:

In 1979, Richard L. Bond of Portland, Oregon was retained to do some refurbishing of the organ which had been installed “as is.” While the tonal concept of the organ was retained, some pipes were replaced. Others were added to complete existing ranks. Slide tuners were added. The Swell Tremolo was repaired. Pallets were re-covered. The couplers were repaired. And the organ was tonally refinished and tuned. After completion of the work, another dedicatory recital was given. Scott Shaw, a senior organ performance major at the University of Washington and organist of St. Paul's Episcopal in Seattle was the guest recitalist.
