Obviously, we did not contract with K-G. The one stipulation of Edgar's gift was that we must contract with K-G. I even = flew to Dallas to play the recently completed organ at First Baptist. That = organ, and especially the console (the real reason for our interest) were unsatisfactory to me.   In all our dealings with Mr. Geissler, we found him to be a very cordial = and kind man.

Since organbuilding is not an area of expertise in which I excel, I cannot speak = to the depth of his skill.   Edgar Morrison, as most know, later spent time in prison. This is fact. He =   was very nice to us and treated us to dinner, etc., on several occasions. = He enjoyed Coral Ridge Church and often came to services when he was in the area.

The old 3m. 1913 Karn-Warren pipe organ was failing and he presented himself as a Baptist philanthropist. If the Church would pay for half the cost of what he said would be essentially a new organ, he would = pay the other half as a testimony to his still ( at that time ) living mother whom he claimed was married in Jarvis Street Bap. and had been a member of the choir. He also talked about throwing new wall to wall carpet into the deal.   (I should mention that the organ loft in Jarvis St. Baptist can barely = hold a medium sized 3m, none of the monster sized Casavants available in = Toronto at the time could have fit in any practical way) The church would be obliged to contribute $100, 000+ Canadian. Jarvis = Street was known as a wealthy church but at that time the deacons and pastor = could not consider spending anything close to that amount on a pipe organ. So, the deal was rejected--besides that, at least one deacon smelled a = rat.   Later investigation showed the church had no record of his mothers = marriage or choir involvement. I have seen a copy of the 1984(?) inauguration program of the organ in 1st Baptist, Dallas. On the second page Edgar's mothers' (claimed) association with Jarvis Street Baptist, Toronto was highlighted ( someone felt it = worth the mention). I was also shown a copy of the contract between K.G. and 1st Baptist. The document was very short on words considering the size of the project.   Darryl's story concerning Coral Ridge is similar to the treatment of key people of Jarvis Street Baptist at the hands of Edgar. They were "wined = and dined" ( without the wine ). On one occasion Edgar took a very important phone call in the presence of his guests in his lavish penthouse apartment and briefly but loudly discussed a real estate deal worth millions. The guests were very impressed. They also met Deiter Geisler--who, of course, turned out to be a very nice man. There is a happy ending to part of this recollection: the organ in Jarvis Street Baptist was completely rebuilt by 1991, most of the Karn-Warren organ, with the exception of the pipes were replaced with a rebuilt 1937 Casavant chassis and a new Casavant 3m. console. The church is very happy with the organ and it works flawlessly. I can only imagine what they would have now if they'd come up with the $100k+ in 1982.   A.J.Mead -----Original Message----- From: pipechat@pipechat.org [mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org]On Behalf Of DarrylbytheSea@aol.com Sent: Friday, August 24, 2001 8:12 AM To: pipechat@pipechat.org Subject: Re: Geates-Keissler     HI, Y'all!   I'll throw in just a brief note on this subject.
