There have been much research lately into the biographies of CT Russell and "Judge" Rutherford, the first and second presidents of the Watchtower Bible and Tract Society, but not so much research into the biography of the third president of the WBTS, Nathan Homer Knorr.
As there are many people still living, and who also post here at JWD, who knew Nathan Knorr personally, it might be worthwhile to start a thread about the life and personality of Knorr.
So if anyone has any Knorr stories, please post them here. I will start off by posting some basic biographical information.
