Database Manager on April 20, 2018:

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.
