    I was thinking this isn't a very big list, in fact downright puny. Out of millions?

    Kid Gavilin of Cuba, Welter weight champion of the world in the 1950's. The Society wanted him to write his life story for the AWAKE magazine but he was too 'punch drunk' to do so. You can 'Google' his life story.

      Mark McCumber, pro tour golfer.

      Ozzie and Harriet? I'd heard that for years but just checked it out. Instead, a site from one of Ricky Nelson's former musicians (Fang Volker? who is a witness) shows a string of picture Christmas Cards from the Nelson family. He got fired for not starting the happy birthday tribute to somebody (I think Ricky).

      Eve Arden, who starred as Our Miss Brooks on radio and TV. Just a rumor.

      Oh -- the William's sisters have been mentioned before on this forum. Consensus was that they've never been baptized.

      At one time Cat Stevens may have been a jw.

      At this time he is an active believer of the Religion Of islam.

      I sure liked his recording of The first morning.

      Huh? What, did the Moslems kick him out? His wiki makes no mention of it.

      I was going to post that Phil Volk is/was a witness (he attended my parents congregation). Phil was a member of the 70's group 'Paul Revere and the Raiders'. In the group, his nickname was "Fang".

      I didn't know he was connected to the famous Nelson Family.

      -Aude.

      Teresa Graves - Reputedly the first black woman to play the lead in a police movie, also a singer.

      Does anyone else remember when she went on TV (60 min, 20/20 or something) back in the 70's with a couple of elders representing JWs? She acted like some sort of spokes-woman. I remember a lot of folks were very upset about it because she was only JUST baptized and already on National TV speaking for all JWs.

      I heard rumors that Van Morrison was raised a JW

      Ronnie Laws - Jazz musician/brother of Herbert Laws (don't know current status)

      Wayne Henderson - Jazz Crusaders (elder still probably)

      Wilton Felder - Jazz Crusaders still an elder

      Phil Volk is still a JW - can be found usually performing in an oldies review of Paul Revere and the Raiders in Las Vegas.
