Notes: Contract #1007-A was signed in 1960 for drawings of how the Gallery division would look and be arranged in the tower, but this division was never built.

In 2006, the organ was removed by Quimby Pipe Organs, rebuilt and enlarged to 51 ranks and relocated with a new console to St. Theresa Catholic Church in Sugar Land, Texas.
