Database Manager on December 11, 2019:

From the NYC AGO NYC Organ Project: An early, if not the first, organ installed in St. Thomas Chapel was built by Johnson & Son in 1897. The following specification was recorded by Lynnwood Farnam (1885-1930), noted concert organist of the early 20th century, in one of his "Organ Notebooks." Farnam commented that the Johnson was a "Clumsy old organ, tracker," and that it "Stood in northeast corner of church." Farnam also noted that he "visited it when Maurice Garahant was organist. New Skinner succeeded it."
