By the time the 1952 Möller pipe organ was tuned for Duke Divinity School’s 78 th Closing Convocation, student and staff volunteers had donated at least 30 hours to disassemble and move it from York Chapel to its new home in the gallery of Goodson Chapel.

“I am grateful to all your efforts in dismantling, cleaning, labeling, packing, carrying, dusting, vacuuming, reassembling, and tuning—and for remaining in such a good humor all the while,” said John John Santoianni, Ethel Sieck Carrabina curator of organs and harpsichords at Duke University.

Santoianni, who organized and directed the volunteers said, “I have rarely had such a pleasant and inquisitive group of people assisting with an organ move, something which made the day both enjoyable and very productive.”
