Database Manager on October 03, 2005:

Online update from Watson Copeland -- Organ is no longer at church in chambers. A sixteen rank Wicks was purchased in 1957 as a replacement. It was not installed for some years later due to the controversy of the construction of the Greater New Orleans Connection. St. John the Baptist narrowly escaped destruction in the building of the GNO.
