By Steve McCollum

Reader John van Kleef inquired about theatre organ books.  Curious, 
I hit, which had no index for "theatre organs" but had 
a number for "Wurlitzer".  Here are several interesting ones:

  Reviews and Commentary for Behold the Mighty Wurlitzer : The History
  of the Theatre Pipe Organ

  Book Description : John W. Landon, himself a theatre pipe organist,
  has written the first history of the theatre pipe organ.  He traces
  its development from church organ to a theatrical instrument that took
  the place of a piano.  Landon also discusses the pipe organ's later
  emergence as a solo instrument, its use in radio broadcasting and
  phonograph records, and its present uses.  The book also includes a
  history of those companies that built theatre organs and biographical
  sketches of some of the leading theatre organists.  The appendixes
  list theatre organ installations around the world.
