Identified from a document by Ronald J. Swedlund on the history of the organs of St. Paul's Methodist Church up through 1949. "In 1944, St. Paul’s member Joseph Denniston, along with Butterfield Company of Detroit, donated the 1923 Barton organ from Monroe’s Family Theatre. Designed to accompany silent films and renamed the Denniston organ, this two-manual instrument spoke through a tripartite screen—designed by the architectural firm Bennett and Straight (Dearborn, Michigan)—featuring lattice-filled arches. In 1946, St. Paul’s members Mr. and Mrs. E. C. Betz donated indoor Deagan cathedral chimes “in memory of loved ones.” Named Betz Memorial Chimes and played from a keyboard near the organ console, these chimes were electronically amplified outdoors, from the church’s tower."
