Database Manager on March 30, 2009:

Identified through on-line information from William O. Autry. -- This small tracker organ was built by the Andover Organ Company in 1966 for the Bradford Jr. College of Haverhill, Massachusetts. When the school closed in 2000, the organ was acquired by Jay Winick of Montreal, Quebec. He had it retuned to A=415 (meantone) and "revoiced" in 2003. It was maintained by Juget-Sinclair Organbuilders of Montreal. The organ was sold to me in April 2007 and relocated to my home, just outside South Bend, Indiana.
