Barbara Anderson wrote an interesting article about CTR and how he wrote out of the Society's history the first president of the WTS, William H Conley. He was first President in 1881; Joseph Russell was VP and CTR was Sec/Tres. CTR re-registered the org in 1884 with himself as President and never even mentioned Conley's death in the WT.
This all came to light in the late 1980's when she was researching for the 'Proclaimers' book. Conley gets just a one line mention in that book and I have never seen him mentioned elsewhere in the Society's literature.
