Database Manager on May 07, 2007:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- This was the relocating and reinstallation of the congregation's existing Hinners tracker from the old edifice (St. Jakobi Lutheran) to the new edifice - St. James Lutheran (Jakobi, Anglicized). It was installed "as is." In 1975, they contracted for a new Wicks, and the Hinners was sold to Ray Whipple of Waterloo, Iowa. While still in storage, the organ was offered for sale again and acquired through the Organ Clearing House by the Vereinige Deutschsprachige Kirche (German UCC) in Seattle, Washington. where it was restored, slightly altered - both physically and tonally - by Randall J. McCarty of Seattle, and reinstalled in 1976.
