Database Manager on June 23, 2009:

Identified through online information from Rick England. -- This organ served the church between 1954 4/21 Moller Op. 8928 (with 72 stops prepared for) and the Glatter Gotz. Used the same [Möller] console, all the original chests with some additional EP chests and many ranks of Casavant pipes. New Principal choruses in Great, Swell and Positiv by Casavant, All new reeds except Pedal Bombarde, many new flutes. All strings were reused from Moller. Abbott and Seiker provided a Zimbelstern, a Resultant 32' and a rolling platform so that the organist (me at the time) could conduct the choirs from any place in the chancel. 22 new stops, remainder revoiced/rescaled original Moller stops. Organ reported sold to a church in the southwest (Arizona or New Mexico) where it is rumored to have burned.
