Database Manager on February 02, 2013:

Updated through online information from randy terry. -- The Aeolian organ was rebuilt subsequent to its installation and not all original pipework remained with the instrument. A lovely 8' Gedeckt from the 1928 Aeolian installation is now at home in the swell division of a composite organ in St. Peter's Episcopal Church, Redwood City, CA, where I was organist and supervised the rebuild.

Database Manager on August 01, 2010:

Identified through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- Information from the church website and the Aeolian opus list. According to the church's website, "1928 - Sanctuary lengthened the width of one lot on Jackson Street to accommodate a new Aeolian pipe organ. The old organ (which had also been in the Powell Street church) is sent to St. Mary's College in Moraga where it is still in use."
