Joe O'Donnell on February 18, 2021:

This is the "shop sweepings" practice organ assembled for Harold Gleason and his wife Catherine Crozier on the instructions of Joseph Whiteford. The organ is referenced in Charles Callahan's 1996 book "Aeolian-Skinner Remembered" on pages 85-86 and 477-478. Crozier was artist-in-residence at Trinity from 1993-2003 and left the organ to the church in her will. It now resides in the rear balcony in the chapel.
