Database Manager on September 27, 2012:

Identified through online information from T. Daniel Hancock. -- Owen, 1979, states that this instrument was one (the only one) in which Goodrich experimented with the idea of enclosing the treble of the manual in a swell-box, in order to attempt the effect of a two manual organ with a swell. He was unable to achieve the scaling to his satisfaction, and abandoned the idea after this instrument.
