Builder Identification

St. Hyacinthe, Québec, Canada, c. 1944.

Additional Notes

  • From the OHS PC Database, derived from A Guide to North American Organbuilders, revised edition, by David H. Fox (Organ Historical Society, 1997). —

    Edgar Carpentier was with Casavant Frères Ltée. of St. Hyacinthe, Québec, Canada, c. 1944.

    Edgar Carpentier does not have an entry in the 1997 edition of Fox's Guide to North American Organbuilders, presumably the entry came from the 1991 edition. He is listed as part of the staff at the entry for Casavant Frères in the 1997 edition, but that does not include the time of his employment nor the page where his entry is listed in the original source, D’Aigle, L'histoire de Casavant Frères. –Ed.

Some of our entries are names that might never appear on a nameplate or nameboard.
On the other hand, there are both individuals and firms who are responsible for conserving historic organs through location, or preserving the usefulness of pipe organs through rebuilding or making modifications to existing instruments. In these cases, we are proud to acknowledge their contributions to the ongoing artistic tradition of the pipe organ in America through individual entries in our online database.
