    B.L. McCrary established McCrary Pipe Organ Service in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, in 1945 as an organ service firm. He operated the firm until his retirement (date unknown but after 1982) when his son, Mark L. McCrary took over the business. The firm was the Oklahoma sales and service representative for M.P. Moller of Hagerstown, Maryland, until 1992 when the Moller firm went out of business. The firm continues to operate although in a very limited manner with Mark McCrary as the only employee.

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.
