The Mildred Miles Crew ’45 Memorial Organ in Occidental’s Herrick Memorial Chapel and Interfaith Center was donated to the College in memory of Crew, who occasionally served as organist for Student Church services. She died in 1964. Manuel Rosales, president and tonal director of Rosales Organ Builders, has maintained the instrument, built by the Schlicker Organ Co., off and on since 1973. Though the organ was rarely used for some 15 years prior to its 50th birthday last October, Rosales, in conjunction with Kevin Cartwright of Cartwright Pipe Organ Co., undertook a major restoration on the neo-baroque-style instrument that was designed for the chapel by Clarence Mader, Occidental’s professor of organ and College organist from 1955 to 1968.
