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). —

    Eugène Chevalier was with Casavant Frères Ltée. firm of St. Hyacinthe, Québec, Canada, c.1945.*

    *In her list of employees, Jeanne D’Aigle gives only one year which may be the "date d'entrée ou de départ" (hiring or ending date). Thus 1945 could mean that the employee: started in 1900 and retired in 1945; worked for only the year 1945; or started in 1945 and retired in 2000. The only thing we know for certain is that the person worked there in 1945. –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.
