Kinzey/Bodine

Tonal Design: Willis Bodine, Jr.
Organ Builder: Bertram Kinzey, Jr.
Gainesville, FL, 1972

The history of this organ dates back to 1970 with a research project on the Acoustical Influences of Casework Enclosing Pipe Organs. Bertram Kinzey, Professor in the College of Architecture, headed this study. The music building was recently constructed and, thus, in need of a few practice organs. This study would not only supply the researchers with an instrument to examine, but the School of Music would receive the organ as a practice instrument. The tonal design was formulated by then University Organist and Professor Emeritus Willis Bodine (UF faculty member from 1959-2003). The instrument consists of 8 ranks and has electric and stop action.
