Sorry, I have little information about Read. There may be a photo in one of the convention reports. I'll look when I can.

I have less information about Hirsh.

I really love the old songbooks!I just found a hymn from the Hymns of Dawn that we still use in our current songbook("Sing to Jehovah")
Its number 58 (its words are like the number 277 in the hymns of Dawn)!!!!What a joy to discover that there is a connection between the old and the new gems of the Truth!!!!
