Database Manager on December 12, 2014:

The original Hinners console was discarded some time in the 1960's. For the restoration project, Buzard Pipe Organ Builders was able to acquire a 1929 Hinners console shell manufactured within approximately a year of the St. John's organ from a south-side Chicago Catholic church. St. John's was the home church for the Hinners family.
