Additional Notes

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

    Charles Eugene Haskell was born Oct. 1877 in Massachusetts; he was the son of Charles S. Haskell, and the brother of William E. Haskell.

    The Haskells moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, in 1880 when Charles S. took a position with a branch of the Roosevelt firm. The elder Haskell established his own firm in Philadelphia in 1888. Charles E. was with his father's firm (C. S. Haskell); and succeeded his father, c. 1903. The Haskell firm went bankrupt in 1923 and was acquired by William A. Loveland, with Charles E. Haskell as head until c.1927. Haskell left Loveland and joined the Estey firm of Brattleboro, Vermont, c.1927; the following year he was with the Geneva firm of Geneva, Illinois, 1928, as superintendent.
