This instrument was formerly the house organ/laboratory for the famed author William H. Barnes. In 1963, Harrision sold his pallatial residence to move into an apartment, and the instrument either sold or given to St. John Fisher in Chicago where it was installed with additional alterations. The stoplist at the time of its installation in Chicago differes from that published in Edition 9 of his iconic book, The Contemporary American Organ. S.E. Gruenstein, founder of the AGO, described the organ as "a thoroughbred of mongrel antecedents". Dr. Barnes played the dedication recital on April 19, 1963.
