Additional Notes

  • From the OHS PC Database, derived from A Guide to North American Organbuilders by David H. Fox (Organ Historical Society, 1991). —

    Nectaire Beauregard was with the Casavant firm of St. Hyacinthe, Québec, Canada in the late 1800s; he died in 1900. The Beauregards trace their history in Quebec back to the 1600's, and members of the family were in the St. Hyacinthe region in the early 1800s. Nectaire appears to be the first to work with the Casavant firm, but several Beauregards worked with the firm during World War II and the the post war period. Nectaire may have been the ancestor of some of them.

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.
