Notes: The contract for $12,000 was signed in May 1909, with a scheduled completion date of October 15. In true Skinner fashion, the organ arrived on October 20 and was completed in time for Sunday, January 9, 1910. In addition to the Celesta and Violone, a Kleine Erzahler and French Horn were added in 1915. The organ was rebuilt, enlarged and modernized tonally by Aeolian-Skinner as their Op.1009 in 1940.

The above stop list and information is taken from the excellent booklet "The 50th Anniversary of the Sage Chapel Organ," released in 1990.
