Hi all, This is an interesting time for this thread. Just yesterday
I came across some 1988 correspondence with a lady in Idaho about an
Aeolian residence pipe organ. I called the business to see if the
organ was still in existence and the organ is still in its location.
The info is: an "early" Aeolian player pipe organ, originally built for
R. E. Olds of Lansing, Michigan. Was sold to Ellsworth O. Johnson of
Spokane, Washington, at some point in time. Was then sold to Allen G.
Cox of Sandpoint, Idaho, in 1972. It has stayed in this installation
since 1972. The player has not worked since its move in '72. The organ
specifications are as follows:
Manual I: Principale Grande 8' 58 pipes, Flauto Primo 8' 58 pipes,
Viola Marina 8' 58 pipes, Flauto Ottava 8' 58 pipes,
Trombetta 8' 58 pipes

Pedal: Contra Basso 16' 27 pipes, Basso Minore 16' 27 pipes,
Flauto Grande 8' 27 pipes
Couplers: Manual I to Pedal, Manual II to Pedal,

Adrian Cox, the son of the late Allen G. Cox, confirmed that the organ
was still in the Sandpoint, Idaho, location. He also indicated that
it could be available for sale, if there was a party interested in it.
