Database Manager on June 13, 2007:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- According to documents from Bill Bunch of Balcom and Vaughan Pipe Organs, this was the electrification and installation of a used 1919 T-P Kimball originally built for the Gateway Theatre in Kirkland, Washington. Mr. Bunch shows the organ at First Norwegian Lutheran as having eight ranks. The Puget Sound Theatre Organ Society shows the original Kimball as having seven ranks. The added 8th rank was the Swell 8' Vox Humana - added by Mr. Longmore when he electrified and installed the organ. The organ also had chimes. The church was later renamed Denny Park Lutheran, and the organ has been rebuilt.
