Database Manager on March 30, 2011:

Updated through on-line information from D. Keith Morgan. -- The console was originally built much larger than it needed to be to conform to the enormous size of the room (95 foot ceiling). The organ was re-leathered by the Roy Redman Organ Company of Fort Worth, Texas. After a plaster ceiling collapsed on the Great, Positiv, Bombarde, and Pedal divisions, those divisions were completely restored by the Schantz Organ Company of Orrville, Ohio, at which time the console was completely rebuilt and is now digital.
