Database Manager on July 31, 2015:

An original installation. Identified by James R. Stettner, based on personal knowledge of the organ.
This organ was originally built for St. Joseph's College in Brooklyn, New York. It is a "Petite Ensemble" instrument. Mr. Griggs will be installing the organ in his basement which is presently being modified.
The console controlling the Kilgen will be the ca. 1910 Odell console originally installed in Trinity Episcopal Church in Everett, Washington.
