Henry Allan "Harry" Ironside was a Bible teacher that made a profession of faith in the Salvation Army, was introduced to the PB thru the open brethren, then traveled as an itinerant with the Grant exclusive brethren, and pastored Moody Memorial Church for 18.5 years, a record for that time. He ministered among both open and exclusive assemblies throughout his tenure.

He authored many volumes on biblical subjects, published originally by Loizeaux Brothers publishing.  It has been said that Sunday mornings prior to taking the pulpit at Moody, he broke bread with a few others in his office.  He also penned a notable historical sketch of the Brethren, and served as the very first W.H. Griffith Thomas Lecturer in 1926 ("The Mysteries of God") at Dallas Theological Seminary, returning in 1932 in same capacity ("Prophecies Related to Israel, the Church, and the Nations"), and 1935-1945. He also served on the Board for the Bob Jones University.

He was introduced to the Brethren in 1896 by a Montgomery who established the first assembly in San Francisco in his hotel in 1887, an open brethren meeting.
