Organ relocated without any change. Identified by James R. Stettner, using information from this web site: http://www.pstos.org/instruments/wa/seattle/white.htm. -- The theatre had shut down and been essentially abandoned. The Kimball organ was sold to Glenn D. White, Jr. for $1,000.00. The console was found sitting in several inches of water at the time of its removal. The organ was removed by he and his father to his parents' home in the Queen Anne section of Seattle, Washington. It reportedly took seven trips with a truck to deliver the entire organ from Chehalis to Seattle. In 1962, Glenn D. white Jr. sold the organ to Reginald Stone of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada - who arranged for Glenn White to install it in the Fox Theatre in Victoria with additions.
