Identified by Steve Bartley, citing information from this publication: Evening Journal5/3/1919 ;Morning Journal Wilmington DE 5/10/1919.
Several articles about the raising of the funds for the organ project, and a few providing scant information in the Wilmington news papers. Only information provided - Two manual,23 stops, electro-pneumatic action, chimes. Current photos found on the Tabernacle webs site & Facebook page does not show any sign of organ in the front of church, nor photos showing the rear of church interior to indicate if an organ is extant.
