Builder: Aeolian-Skinner, Opus 1509, 1968
Robert L. Sipe
Manuals: 3
Ranks: 52
Action: Mechanical key/electric stop

Notes: Installed late summer, 1970. The organ was originally designed by Robert Sipe and built mostly by Laukhuff. While it was being built, Sipe became head of the tracker division at Aeolian-Skinner. Horizontal trumpet and chest are Skinner. Beginning after Easter, 2022, the organ will be partially disassembled for cleaning and restoration by Grandall & Engen as part of extensive 50-year building renovations. David Engen, David Grandall and Jeff Daehn have known and cared for this organ since its installation in 1970. Merrill N. Davis III was organist/consultant. Dedication program played by Robert Anderson of SMU. In the weeks before and after he made recordings in the Aeolian-Skinner recordings series. The week following dedication pews were removed, so that recording has considerably more reverberation than the first.
