Puget 

  The   Puget   family   is   a   dynasty   of   organ   builders   from   Toulouse, founded   by   Théodore   Puget   (1799-1883)   around   1840:   Puget   &   Fils, later   L’entreprise   Puget   &   Fils,   later   Puget   Père   &   Fils   and   in   1866 Manufacture   d’Orgues   Théodore   Puget   père   et   fils.   He   retired   in 1877   and   his   son   Eugène   Puget   (1838-1892)   took   over   the   firm. After     his     death,     his     brother     Jean-Baptiste     Puget     (1849-1940) succeeded   him   (he   never   used   his   own   name,   but   called   himself ‘Théodore’).   His   son,   Maurice   Puget   (1894-1960)   took   over   in   1922 and   would   be   the   last   representative   of   the   dynasty.   With   his   death in 1960, the firm closed its doors. In   1912,   the   company   had   constructed   180   new   organs   and   had worked   on   more   than   350   other   organs.   The   activities   of   the   firm were   mainly   located   in   the   region   of   Toulouse,   but   Jean-Baptiste Puget      has   been   active   also   in   Paris,   in   particular   at   the   beginning   of the XXth century.
