The Robert Morton Organ Company produced both theater pipe organs and church organs. They were located in Van Nuys, California. The Robert Morton company was the number two volume producer of theatre organs, building approximately half as many organs as the industry leader, Wurlitzer. The name "Robert Morton" is derived from the company president Harold J. Werner's son, Robert Morton Werner (thanks Wikipedia for this information).

The Robert Morton company had its origins in the Murray Harris Organ Company of Los Angeles. The company passed through various owners, business names and locations between Murray Harris and Robert Morton, including the Los Angeles Art Organ Company, the Johnston Organ Company, and the California Organ Company. Despite all the corporate change and upheaval, the output in terms of high quality and tonal character was remarkably consistent. Several Robert Morton key personnel were veteran organ builders who had served as apprentices with major English organ building firms. Tonally, Robert Morton organs had a reputation for being powerful, while at the same time refined and "symphonic" in character.
