Database Manager on March 04, 2013:

Altered and relocated existing organ. Identified by James R. Stettner, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- The Guenther organ was originally built for the chapel of the old St. Vincent's Hospital in the West Hills of Portland, OR. It was later displaced and purchased by Gordon Potter of Portland, who later sold it to Dr. Kaye. In July 1992, Dr.Kaye replaced the Great 1-3/5' Tierce with a III Mixture. The original console with name plate was retained.
