NOTES SUPPLIED BY OTHERS: From Roy Redman: "The Aeolian from the Zemurray (presidents) house in Tulane is in storage at our shop. A copy of the original Aeolian contract is in our hands. The
university signed a contract with us for it to be removed, rebuilt and
reinstalled, but defaulted on that contract. They are still paying storage
on the organ, however, and some people are still interested in its
preservation.. One attraction is a huge collection of both Aeolian and
Ampico rolls. A very ornate console, and a remote Ampico player."
