Gospel preacher, founder of Memphis School of Preaching. Gospel preacher listed in Preachers of Today, Vol. 1, 1952, 155. He also worked at Freed-Hardeman College as Dean of Students.

"Brother Hearn was born November 15, 1911 in Wilmor, Arkansas. When he was fourteen years of age, his family moved to Memphis, Tennessee. He was baptized into Christ on July 14, 1934 by brother H. A. Brown. On September 1, 1935 he and Miss Sadie Tisdale were married. In January 1936, brother Hearn preached his first sermon. For sixty-four years this faithful brother preached the gospel of Christ in a very sound and sensible manner, without compromise. Two daughters, Dolly and Janet were born to brother and sister Hearn. After being engaged in secular work for some few years brother Hearn entered Freed-Hardeman College and from there he graduated with honors. Later he received the B.A. degree from Lipscomb with Magna Cum Laude honors. After his graduation from Lipscomb, he received the M.A. degree from Peabody College. I mention the above to state that Roy Hearn was a student of no mean ability. One among many of the great accomplishments of our dear brother was the founding of the Memphis School of preaching in 1966." -- Wayne Coates
