Jim Stettner on April 06, 2021:

From the Fisk website, "This small practice instrument was built at the request of Melville Smith, then organ instructor at Wellesley College, who died suddenly just before the organ was installed. After many years of service at Wellesley College, Opus 37 was purchased for a private residence."

It has now been relocated to the University in Denton, Texas. A 4' Flute has been added to Manual I.
