Updated through online information from Don Frank Hermanson.
I am Don Hermanson, Organist-Choirmaster at First Lutheran/Galveston (since Jan 1990). The Walcker firm never built an organ for First Lutheran Galveston. A bid/proposal for a three manual instrument (which I have seen and have in my possession somewhere!) was received from the Walcker firm in the mid-60s, but the church eventually contracted with the Freiburger Orgelbau firm for a three manual, 41 rank instrument in the rear gallery of the "new" church (built 1958-59), and it was installed in 1973. It is still in use in its original form.
