The only listing for Elgin, Illinois on the Boadway Hinners list is for the 1925 instrument.
Brief article in The Diapason, January 1926: "Edwin Stanley Seder, assisted by Mme. Else Harthan Arendt, presided at the dedication recital in the First Evangelical Church, Elgin, Ill., Nov. 6. The organ, a product of the Hinners Organ Company, Pekin, Ill., was presented to the church in 1902 by William Grote as a memorial. After twenty-three years of continued service this organ, a large tracker, has been completely rebuilt by the original builders. It has been electrified with a modern detached console and among other additions is a set of memorial chimes.
