Database Manager on July 01, 2008:

Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ originated from Trinity Episcopal Church in Trinidad, CO. It was acquired by Dr. Robert W. Magin of Long Beach, CA. and installed in his Villa Riviera condo ca. 1956 by Dr. Magin and friends/parishioners.

The organ was sold to this congregation in 1960, and was removed from the Magin residence by Clinton B. Meadway - one of Dr. Magin's former students. As of 1965, the organ had still not been installed. Subsequent disposition unknown.
