An item of interest: Professor Heinrich Fleischer was employed by the Society to be a consultant in the design and building of the First Unitarian Society organ.  When asked to recommend an organist he offered himself to fill the position.  He became, he stated, probably the only Twin Cities Unitarian organist who was also a direct descendant of Martin Luther. --Gregory Nilsson
