Database Manager on June 12, 2006:

Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- The original home of this organ is undocumented. It was installed in Dunham's in 1936 - probably by Balcom and Vaughan. Dunham's was bought-out by Kern Funeral Home in 1951, and the organ was donated to Immaculate Conception in Mt. Vernon. It was installed there by Richard Warburton, and was replaced later by a new Wicks. The subsequent disposition of the Wurlitzer is undocumented.
