Notes: The stop list is taken from the shop notes printed in The American Classic Organ – A History in Letters, by Charles Callahan, published in 1990 by and available through The Organ Historical Society. This book, along with Aeolian-Skinner Remembered – A History in Letters, also available through the OHS, are highly recommended and quite fascinating.
