   Tower tubes by Deagan,
   donated by W.E.Adams,
   installed by R.Lofink.
   (Mr.Adams was thought to be a good
   prospect for enlarging the chime with
   another 10 tones, so it was wired for
   20, but that never happened.)

*Technical data:

   Electric-keyboard chime of 10 tubular bells
   Pitch of heaviest bell is unknown
   Transposition is unknown
   Keyboard range:     ----  /    ----  
   The arrangement of tones and semitones is unknown.
   The whole instrument was installed in 1930
     with tubular bells made by Deagan      
   Auxiliary mechanisms: E     
   Tower details not available
   Year of latest technical information source is 1930

The museum Website has a photo of the building, with the central bell tower clearly visible.  But it does not mention the chime.

Where this work lies in the sequence of output of the J.C.Deagan Company.
