THS first Conclave/Theatre Tour / photo from Fr. Early

I Found It In The Archives!

Recently staff and volunteers were sorting through a “found” box of photographs.  The box contained images taken by and/or of THS members.  Several photos are labeled as early THS Conclave/Theatre Tours or Board meetings.  The picture below is supposed to be from the very first Conclave/Theatre Tour.  Staff could not identify everyone in the photo.  The identified people are Bro. Andrew Corsini (3rd from left), Ben M. Hall (fourth from left), and Frank Cronican (fifth from left).

Can you name any of those seated at the table? 

UPDATE: Craig Morrison has identified himself and his ex Mary as those seated as first and second from the left.

  1. OMG Kathy…..there was actually a female on the dias. Much more formal back then. And….why is that lectern so short?

    I’m reasonably sure that the 5th from the left is Richard Simonton.

    Dennis,
    You mean the 6th from the left is Simonton.
    Could 7th from the left by Joe DuBella?
    Isn’t there a list somewhere of the founders?? Compare that list to the photo.

    My spelling error: Joe DuciBella

    Dennis: Thanks! I will see if I can find another photo of Richard Simonton to compare to this photo.
    Wayne: Yes, we do have a list of founding and early members. However there are no photos associated with the list. Also, good guess but there is another photo which shows Joe DuciBella in the audience. So I don’t think that it is him on the dias.
