A plaque in the stairwell outside of the organ gallery states that the "Trompettes, Bombardes and other reed on this organ are given in honor of Dr. Robert Anderson (of SMU) by his student Dr. John B. Herrington III." Dr. Herrington, a known benefactor of the organ world and a top-notch organist/improviser himself, is a pathologist practicing in Richmond and is the major donor of this instrument.
Olivier Latry, organist titulare of the Cathedral of Notre Dame, Paris, France, dedicated Opus 112 on 18 April 1999.
