This entry describes an original installation of a new pipe organ.
Identified by William M. Worden, citing information from this publication: Detroit Free Press, June 25, 1911, Detroit Times, June 10, 1911..
Internal inspection of the later Tellers organ in the church by William M. Worden and James J. Hammann suggested that the Tellers might have been an extensive rebuilding of this instrument or that pipework from this instrument might have been used in the Tellers.
