Notes: Originally in the home of Prof. Arlene Hilding in St. Peter, it was given to Bethany when she retired. It is in the choir room where there was simply too much traffic and curious fingers ruined the tuning. It is now behind glass doors.

Moller Opus 3526 of 19 ranks was installed in the chapel of Old Main in 1923. By 1970 it had been removed and some of its pipes were incorporated in the temporary 8-rank organ at First Lutheran in St. Peter (since sold to a church in Iowa). The Solo division of the Moller had suffered the indignity of a student-built still on the walkboard. The still exploded, leaving a green mash residue on the pipes, still visible in the St Peter incarnation. The studio Casavant followed the Moller, which in turn was followed by the Dobson currently in Trinity Chapel.
While the picture above is not the Bethany Moller, this is how it looked before the glass doors. It is a standard model Moller, of which dozens were made.
