Database Manager on January 01, 2006:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- This organ was installed for Wicks by Balcom and Vaughan of Seattle. Notations on an old Balcom and Vaughan opus list contain an ambiguous notation: ex-th. It is unclear whether this is to indicate that the organ may have been an ex-theatre organ, or if the John F. Jerread Mortuary was located in a former theatre. The organ was removed in 1957 to an undocumented private residence in an undisclosed location. The mortuary later became Cassiday's Murtuary, and is now known as Purdy, Walters, and Cassiday. The former Purdy & Walters Mortuary also had a pipe organ.
