The organ was originally built for St. Bernadette's R.C. Church in Burien/Seattle and
was installed there by Glen White of Olympic Organ Builders. It is free-standing and
encased with a detached console. The 5-sectional façade contains notes 1-39 of the
Hauptwerk 8' Principal arranged: 7 – 10 – 5 - 10 – 7.

The Bosch was replaced at St. Bernadette's with an electronic organ and was subsequently
sold to University Temple United Methodist Church in Seattle for $15,000.00. It was removed
from St. Bernadette's, refurbished, and re-erected in Sander Chapel at University Temple
United Methodist Church in 2003 by Frans W.M. Bosman of Mosier, Oregon. The total project
cost including purchase price was $100,000.00. It is installed in the front, left corner
of the chapel and replaced a former pipe organ which was a conglomerate instrument once
installed in the Seattle residence of C.M. “Sandy” Balcom – founder of Balcom and Vaughan
Pipe Organs of Seattle, Washington. That organ was purchased by the Pipe Organ Foundation
of Mercer Island, Washington under the direction of Dr. Carl Dodrill, and was re-installed
at Covenant Presbyterian Church in Issaquah, Washington.
