Database Manager on August 16, 2009:

Built by W.W. Kimball at a cost of $8,525, the initial design was only partially completed during the 1940 installation due to budgetary constraints. In 1958, The Reuter Organ Company (Lawrence, Kansas), in collaboration with Mary McCall Stubbins, the resident organist from 1942 to 1997, completed the organ with minor revisions to the originally envisioned stoplist. The Reuter Organ Company also provided a new console in 1988 and changed the physical configuration of the organ in 1990.
