Database Manager on October 23, 2007:

Updated through on-line information from James R. Stettner. -- The original home and previous homes of this organ are unknown. It was installed here at St. James in Dillon in 1938. When replaced with a Möller in 1948, it was relocated to St. John's Episcopal in Townsend, Montana by an unknown person or firm where it served another 10 years before being replaced by a Hammond. It was acquired by Don Stagg of Butte and stored for many years. He restored it for his Vancouver, B.C. residence in the 1970s, and moved it to his home in Blaine, Washington when he moved in the 1980s.
