Notes: Hendrickson shop and Organ Historical Society as of 2012.
Editor's note: This was a temporary organ thrown together and rented to First Lutheran in St. Peter when the current sanctuary was built in the early 1960's. It was leased from Hendrickson from 1965 and was intended to be used for only 3 years. It contains mostly used pipes, some from the organ at Bethany College in Mankato. I played it roughly from 1972-78 in the 4 second reverberation of First Lutheran. The Trumpet was horizontal. There were electronic bass extensions by Richard Lurth that never worked. Here is the stoplist to the best of my recollection, which is 9 ranks even though we always referenced it as 8.
