This Kimball instrument was originally installed in 1924 (opus 6748) in the Chehalis, Washington St. Helens Theatre. It was purchased from the theatre for $1,000 in 1952 by Glenn White. In 1962 the organ was sold to Canadian organist Reginald Stone who commissioned Mr. White to install it in the Fox Theater in Victoria, B.C.
After the Fox, Frank Mankin installed the organ in his Burnaby home studio in 1966. In 1981, Mrs. Carol Otto of St. Albert, Alberta purchased the instrument. In April 1999, the organ was donated by Ms. Otto to the keyboard museum in Calgary, Alberta. D. Stuart Kennedy faciliated the donation and installation at the museum.
