STOP, OPEN AND REED is a magazine published by the Skinner Organ Company in eight issues during the years 1922 to 1929. Lavishly illustrated with pictures of organs, churches, residences and their Skinner organs, this magazine helped establish and maintain the image of the 20th-century�s best known organbuilder. There are articles about important organs in such locations as New York�s St. Thomas Church, Trinity Church Wall Street, Holy Trinity Lutheran Church; Cleveland Auditorium, The San Francisco Palace of the Legion of Honor, Eastman School of Music, Princeton, and Yale (and mentions of at least 32 other university Skinners), St. Luke�s Episcopal Church in Evanston, Illinois; Toledo Museum of Art, Jefferson Ave. Presbyterian Church in Detroit, and many, many others. Each issue contains stoplists, installation lists, letters from well known musicians and photographs of the writers as well as other luminaries including company officials. Ernest Skinner writes several essays on organ tone, mechanism, locating an organ, organbuiling as an art, residence organs, travel, the theatre organ, mixture stops, and other topics. Contributors of other major articles include Henry Willis, Arthur Hudson Marks, Gordon Balch Nevin, and G. Donald Harrison. OHS has gathered the entire run of Stop, Open and Reed into a 224-page facsimile in its orginal 8 1/2" x 11" size.
