Database Manager on November 03, 2006:

Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ was originally built for Green Lake Seventh-day Adventist Church in Seattle. It was replaced there in 1977 by a new Casavant at which time the B and V was relocated here to the University - presumably by Balcom and Vaughan.
