Database Manager on September 19, 2019:

According to the write-up in the January 1966 issue of THE DIAPASON: "Some replacement of initial unification will be provided later. The Great, Positif and parts of the Pedal will be exposed in the chancel. Because of space limitations, the Choir will be enclosed with the Swell. Some portions of the old organ (ca.1920), the only pipe organ in Merced County, will be retained in the new instrument. The organist is Mrs. Kenneth Cutting."
