Abstract
 
Description
Ray Biswanger fills in the missing details concerning the massive Wanamaker Organ located in the Grand Court of the Lord & Taylor department store in Philadelphia. He particularly discusses the evolution of the instrument, its role in the concert scene of the twenties, and the goals of the designers who worked on this instrument. With more stops than any other organ, the Wanamaker Organ is known as one of the largest.
