Hymnary Friends,

Please pardon this brief interruption, and please consider a gift today to support the work of Hymnary.org. Here's why.

Each month half a million people visit this website for free access to the most complete database of North American hymnody on the planet. But this project does not come without a cost, and we have limited sources of revenue. Twice a year we hold a fund drive, and these drives are critical to our future.

So if you benefit from Hymnary.org, would you consider a donation today? Even small amounts help, and they also let us know you're behind us and support what we do.

Click the Donate button below to be taken to a secure giving site. Or you can make your tax-deductible contribution by sending a check to Hymnary.org at 3201 Burton SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546.

On behalf of the entire Hymnary.org team, our thanks.
Harry Plantinga

Charles C. Ackley

Short Name: Charles C. Ackley
Full Name: Ackley, Charles C. (See also Meridith, I. H.)

Given name Isaac Hickman Meredith. Used Pseudonym Charles C. Ackley. See also Meredith, I. H.

There is a "Chas. C. Ackley" listed as an editor to "Children's Praise No. 1" also edited by I. H. Meredith and published by Tullar-Meredith. It is unclear whether this is a pseudonym or a name of a real person. However, "Charles C. Ackley" is identified as a pseudonym of Meredith's in the 1938 Catalog of Copyright Entries for renewals of music published in 1912. These compositions use "Charles" instead of "Chas."
