Database Manager on August 21, 2013:

Updated through online information from William A. Gaskarth. -- Had an opportunity to play the instrument in the 1980's. The organ was in the care of D. Stuart Kennedy at the time. From what I can recollected this instrument is original and is tonally unaltered. The organ is of large scale - typical for this period.
