Database Manager on March 12, 2012:

Updated through online information from Ron Yeater. -- The first time I went to tune the Wicks, a crew was in the process of removing the old organ. It was definitely a Moller, and 1927 seems right, but 60+ ranks seems rather too big for the chamber space!!

Database Manager on July 28, 2005:

The Wicks opus list shows it as 2/11rk. May have replaced a 3/69rk, 1927 Möller, Op. 5005. (Information from the AGO St. Louis Chapter Yearbook, 2004-2005.)
