Database Manager on October 26, 2015:

Updated through online information from Dorothy Clark. -- I am a member of Columbia Presbyterian Church, grew up there, and was in my senior year of high school when the organ was installed. I became a church organist myself but not on staff at Columbia; however, I frequently practice there and occasionally play for funerals, etc. The history of the organ is, therefore, known to me.
