According to Jim Stettner, the organ was a 3/23, not a 3/24 as stated in the Junchen Encyclopedia.
Following an inspection of the instrument in 2007, Jim States: "The pipes and chests are certainly original. But I'm not entirely convinced that this is the original Kimball console - though it IS definitately a Kimall console. I would have expected a 1914 Kimball to have been tubular-pneumatic. So perhaps this was a replacement console installed when Laurelhurst Presbyterian acquired the organ from the theatre..and presumably
had it electrified."
