Bill Bunch residence organ, c. 1954
William "Bill" Bunch had a 3/15 hybrid instrument installed in his home. Installation began in 1943 and was completed in 1949. The organ was a combination of several instruments, primarily the 2/6 Morton from the Liberty Theatre in LaGrande, Oregon. Bill enlarged the console to three manuals.
When Bill took a job with Aeolian Skinner in the mid-1950's, the instrument was sold. In 1956, the console went to Grant Caprioni of Burton, Washington for $125. It was eventually sold to Gennie Whitting of Seattle for use with her residence organ. Some time after Bill sold it, the console was downsized back to two manuals.
