Notes: According to the E.M. Skinner/Ĉolian-Skinner Opus List. compiled by Allen Kinzey and Sand Lawn and available through the Organ Historical Society, the organ was sold to Wurlitzer and placed in the auditorium of the Heinz Co. in Pittsburgh in 1930; it was flood-damaged in 1936 and the console was replaced by Kimball; the organ's percussion was added to Op. 907 (Carnegie Institute, Music Hall); reportedly, the organ was moved to Texas and dispersed in 1987.
