Database Manager on November 08, 2007:

Identified through online information from James R. Stettner. -- his was the electrification and installation of the 1881 John Bergstrom tracker originally built for Taylor Street Methodist Episcopal in Portland. This was likely done by the Guenther Organ Co. of Portland. It was later replaced with a new Bond tracker, and the Bergstrom found its way to storage at the Catholic Diocese in Portland. It was later used for a new organ built by the Bond firm as their opus 25, 1996 for Holy Rosary in Portland. The pipes were used for this new instrument. The manual slider chests were acquired by Meadway & Stettner Pipe Organs of Monroe, WA and are still in storage at present.
