NOTES
This instrument replaced a previous 2-manual, 5-rank Robert Morton theatre organ from
the Liberty Theatre in LaGrande, Oregon, and installed here used in 1941 by Balcom and
Vaughan of Seattle.

The Swell division is based upon a used Wangerin organ of undocumented provenance – 
likely from the 1920's. Both the pipework and windchests are from that instrument.
The exposed Great windchests and pipework were new at the time of their installation.
This project was reportedly done by Grant Sprague.

On the Great, the 4' Rohr Flute borrows its top 12 notes from the 4' Gemshorn. There
is also a set of chimes playable from the Great. They are controlled by their On-Off/
Volume switch only. Their compass is 21 notes from tenor A (note 22) thru f 42.

On the Swell, the 8' Oboe is a synthetic stop – being derived from the 8' Salicional
and the 2-2/3' Nazard (Concert Flute).
