Hanaford, J. H., M.D., born in New Hampton, New Hampshire, Jan. 27, 1819, and educated for the medical profession. He arranged the first edition of Phineas Stowe's Ocean Melodies, 1848, and for it he composed 19 hymns. Some of these are signed "J. H. H.," and others "J. H. Hanaford." One on Setting Sail, "Great God, at Thy command," is specially good for its purpose. --John Julian, Dictionary of Hymnology, Appendix, Part II (1907)  Go to person page >
