This organ was originally installed for Kilgen by Balcom and Provorse of Seattle, WA.
Writing on the wall of the chamber reads as follows:
Kilgen * Unit
Chapel * Organ
Installed * May, 1930.
Balcom * Provorse
Organ * Engineers
Frank * Rasor * asst.
Warren * Webb
The organ has an interesting array of colored stoptablets. Flute stops and the Aeoline
have white tablets. The Vox Hum has red tablets. The V D Orch/Salic has blue tablets.
And the percussions have yellow tablets. The console is horseshoe shaped. The blower
and Tremolo are in the basement which renders the tremolo rather ineffectual by virtue
of its distance from the regulator.
