Identified through on-line information from Stephen Hall. -- Phase I (mechanical and electrical renovation, replacement of console, new arrangement of display pipes) completed in 2008. A seven division, the Gospel organ, will be added in Phase II using pipes from a Kimball organ currently installed elsewhere on campus. Builder's stoplist is considerably larger than original, but does not denote if any of the additions are digital. (information from builder's website, accessed Oct 2009)
