Database Manager on October 30, 2004:

Aeolian-Skinner retained 20 ranks of pipes and added 14 in 1948, with renovations and a new console. In the late 1950's, new supply house windchests were installed in the Swell and Great divisions by Andover Organ Company due to water damage. Aeolian-Skinner installed the Great mixture at a later date. The pipework is in chambers on both sides of the chapel.
