Database Manager on June 22, 2011:

Identified through on-line information from Ronald Crowl. -- One of Kimball's five-rank unit instruments, installed in 1941 - was reportedly a demonstration instrument in Kimball Hall, but no documentation supports this. The organ is installed in a chamber in the ceiling above the choir stalls in the tiny 1940 English Gothic-Revival building, and the detached console has beautifully carved Gothic panels. There is a great deal of pipework containing high tin content - the only wooden pipes are the bottom 24 of the flute unit, the balance being capped tin.
