Updated through online information from Michael Bigelow. -- This instrument is a essentially a "continuo" organ with the three basic stops: Gedackt 8', Rohrfloete 4', and Praestant 2'. Pull down pedal. I confirmed just now with Stephen Parsons, Director of ISU Normal School of Music, that the instrument is stored in the Kemp Recital Hall, and is used occasionally.
