David H. Fox, Hilborne and Frank Roosevelt
From David Fox's Preface: "Whenever the term 'patrician' is applied to organ building, one often calls to mind the work of Hilborne Roosevelt for two reasons. First, for his birth into a family of wealth and social standing that would eventually produce two Presidents of the United States. Second, for the high-mindedness with which he approached the construction of organs - only the finest aspects of various styles, the best materials, and most skilled craftsmen were employed. This fascinating look at the Roosevelt Organ Company, with many photos and a complete list of instruments and patents.
