Database Manager on April 29, 2007:

Identified through on-line information from Jeff Scofield. -- The organ was designed by Edwin Lemare, who served as temple organist concurrently with his position as municipal organist. His benefactor in the latter position was also the new temple's benefactor. The Möller was unusually complete, with a Tuba and 32' Bourdon. It was replaced in 1974 with a 3-manual Allen. Much of the pipework was relocated to a church in Anniston, Alabama.
