How shall we pronounce Ryerson? I have two suggestions but don't know whether any is correct or not.

1: ryerson will sound like higher-son

2: ryerson will sound like deer-son
My guess would be 1, but names are sometimes difficult as people with the same name may pronounce it in different ways.
I pronounce it as [ r\aIr=s@n ] , which is closer to #1 than #2, but is not exactly the same as #1.

higher-son [ haIr=sVn ]
deer-son [ dIr\sVn ]
