Database Manager on June 25, 2009:

Identified through information posted to PipeChat by 'Organist George' June 24, 2009: -- The Dickinson Kimball originally was installed in the Boyd Theatre in Centre City Philadelphia. In time, the organ became silent and it was in 1968 that the organ was rescued and moved to the auditorium of the John Dickinson High School. In subsequent years the original organ of 19 ranks has been enlarged to an exciting instrument of 66 ranks.
