Updated through online information from David Michael Kenney, Sr..
This organ was restored in the mid-1980's by George Bayley, with the assistance of Donald R. Cameron (who, among other tasks, returned the pipes to their former appearance by creating stencils from ghost patterns and repainting them as they appear in the photographs).
