Notes: To quote from a convention handbook of the Organ Historical Society: "This instrument was built for St. Joseph's Hospital Chapel in San Francisco, the gift of a donor who specified "the best organ money can buy." Designed by G. Donald Harrison, it served the chapel until 1982, when the hospital was closed. St. Boniface [Catholic Church] organist Thomas McGuire made arrangements for Schoenstein & Co. to move the organ to its present location [in the chancel of St. Boniface]. The expression box was rebuilt to enclose only the Swell; the screen was provided by the church. All the pipes except the Pedal Bourdon 16' are of spotted metal; the Swell bourdon 8' is capped."
