Updated by George W Jenista, listing conversations with this person as the source of the information: Mr. Zeb Roberts, Music Director, Mt. Pisgah Church.
From Zeb Roberts: \"Here is a letter written by the previous music director concerning the organ you referenced.
Whatever became of the Wurlitzer Pipe Organ from the Berryman Church?
I\'m happy to report, after a long process of finding a good home for the organ, that it is in Hidalgo, Mexico where it will be come part of a larger Wurlitzer installation in the Church of San José (St. Joseph). The church is part of a religious complex that dates back to a monastery that was established there in the 16th century by the Spaniards The main church, which dates back at least 420 years, is going through a renovation that includes restoring a part of the organ that was already present and adding pipes from other organs from the United States. Bill Murdock, a Chicago native, is overseeing the organ project.
Hidalgo is located in the mountains of eastern Mexico, between 200 and 300 miles west of the Gulf of Mexico; with a year \'round temperature of about 75 and low humidity, Hidalgo is the perfect place for an instrument made of temperature and moisture sensitive materials.\"
