Database Manager on October 05, 2014:

According to Murray M. Harris and Organ Building in Los Angeles, 1894-1913 by David Lennox Smith (ed. by Orpha Ochse), the contract was awarded on 25 January 1902; installed during 1903. The organ had tubular-pneumatic action, and was voiced by F.C. Bolton. Harris retained the case work, wooden pedal stops, and some manual bases from the church's 1858 Erben organ. Cost of the organ was $11,000. It survived the earthquake and fire in 1906, and in 1928 was moved to St. Mary's College, Moraga, California.
