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.
