Database Manager on August 01, 2010:

Updated through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- The organ was given to St. Mary's College in Moraga, California ca. 1928 when Calvary Presbyterian got a new Aeolian organ. The Erben case still exists there, and some of the pipework survives in the more recent Austin pipe organ installed within the Erben casework.
