Database Manager on October 28, 2013:

Organ relocated without any change. Updated by Jeff Weiler, based on personal knowledge of the organ. -- This instrument, originally installed at St. James Methodist Church in Chicago, has been the subject of a careful restoration as a joint project between Casavant Frères and J.L. Weiler, Inc. At the client's request, the console has been rebuilt with a contemporary combination action, but this was done such that the outward appearance of the console has not been altered.
