Figure ROBERT KAZMAYER Absolutely Tops as a Speaker on Public Affairs . . World Traveler, Author, Reporter . . Publisher, News Letter: THINGS TO WATCH AND WATCH FOR . . THE REDPATH BUREAU Kimball Bldg., Chicago 4, Ill. Telephone: HArrison 7-8723 ROBERT KAZMAYER The Platform's Most Popular Analyst, National and International Affairs … Clear, Concise, Authoritative, Brilliant, He Gives the Facts as He Sees Them … More Return Dates than any Speaker on the American Platform … Unique among the speakers on the platform today, ROBERT KAZMAYER has not only traveled over the headline countries, he has actually worked in them and lived among those who work. He knows first-hand, RUSSIA, GERMANY, FRANCE, ENGLAND, ITALY, LATIN AMERICA, the FAR EAST. For instance he visited Russia five times. He actually lived and worked with the men and women who have made Russia the mighty nation it is today. ROBERT KAZMAYER tops all speakers on the American Platform in return-date popularity. The reason is simple. Into the welter of talks and tirades, of admonitions and analyses of the problems of America and the post-war world, there has stepped a young man of quiet and forceful intellect, who speaks fearlessly with logic, sanity and clear-cut thought. Caught in Berlin when World War II broke out in 1939, he was back there and almost in the same spot in 1945 when word came it had ended. He spends part of each year covering one of the hot spots of the world. Has a diary which reads like the log-book of a tramp ship of yesteryear. Has friends and correspondents all over the world, and has made yearly trips over Europe since the end of World War II. Conducted The Kazmayer European Seminar this past summer with a group of 35 representative publishers and business men and women from all over U. S. Robert Kazmayer hails from an old American family that has lived in central New York state for many generations. He attended the University of Rochester and was prepared for the Methodist ministry in the Colgate-Rochester Divinity School. Active in civic leadership he was president of the Commerce Club of the Rochester Chamber of Commerce, orginator and for two years moderator of the Rochester Town Hall of the Air. Today—publishes a news letter for business men, Things to Watch and Watch For. He is one of the youngest men in WHO'S WHO. His book—OUT OF THE CLOUDS—gives a down-to—earth picture of what lies ahead in the post-war world. It has been well received. Soon, he will have another book off the press. As a speaker, Mr. Kazmayer has made the most metoric rise of any lecturer in America. He has given many talks in Canada and England. Also lectured in France and Mexico. MR. KAZMAYER'S LATEST LECTURE SUBJECTS WHERE ARE WE NOW? Picture of the U. S. domestic and foreign situation. How we look to our friends … and to our enemies. Our virtues and our vices, our strength and weaknesses … our dangers and our opportunities. A SPEECH ABOUT AMERICA BY AN AMERICAN FOR AMERICANS. BUSINESS OUTLOOK—CHANGING WORLD PICTURE In this lecture businessmen and women get the benefit of sharp, incisive business analysis by the publisher of the businessmen's newsletter, THINGS TO WATCH AND WATCH FOR … HOT ISSUES IN THE COLD PEACE A discussion of the over-all international picture with particular reference to issues affecting U. S. policy, life and economy. THE CHANGING RUSSIAN PICTURE A realistic evaluation of the strength and weaknesses of Russia today by a man who has both worked and repeatedly traveled in the Soviet. EDUCATING FOR TOMORROW An attempt to anticipate the needs, dangers and opportunities … the responsibilities of citizenshp in the years that lie ahead. (A special talk for Teachers Institutes). Enthusiastic Praise for Robert Kazmayer Goodwyn Institute, Memphis, Tenn., Dr. J. B. George The very best. He knows his subject and knows how to tell it to others. In my judgment he ranks with the greatest speakers in America. Urbana, Ill., Association of Commerce, Fred W. Simmering His talk was an excellent one. Style of delivery and diction—FINE. Kansas City Junior College, Shepherd Leffler It was his third appearance here. He held the close attention of the student body and faculty for more than an hour with his vivid impressions of European conditions. His speech was well balanced with serious discussion and humorous sallies. Women's Club of Wisconsin, Milwaukee, Evelen O. Winnie He is an outstanding speaker. Good common sense mixed with a humorous approach. He was greatly enjoyed. Woman's City Club of Kansas City, Mo., Mrs. W. J. Doughty I have never sent a check with greater pleasure because we have seldom had a speaker who was so rewarding in every way. Please keep in mind that next year we will want him again. Sioux City, Iowa, Knife & Fork Club, Wilson T. Clark, Secretary Hit the jack pot for an all-time high. I am sure that a vote of my organization would place him at the top of list of fine speakers for all time. Rotary Club of Chicago, Charles A. Schmitt, Secretary (3d appearance) Our best speaker of the year. Want him back next year or anytime. Would recommend that other college groups should hear him. Rotary Club of Chicago, Charles A. Schmitt, Secretary (3d appearance) EXCELLENT. Lindenwood College, St. Charles, Mo., F. L. McCluer He is one of the finest lecturers on the American platform. We have had him a number of times and hope to have him frequently in the future. Woman's Department Club, Terre Haute, Ind., Mrs. Zoe English Many women have told me it was the best lecture we have had this year. His knowledge of history and great world movements gave him an excellent background to put current happenings in a true perspective for us. Men's City Club of Grand Rapids, Mich., Ralph Windoes, Secretary EXCELLENT. He has appeared in Grand Rapids a number of times in the past, but he seems to get better in every way each time he comes. He left us with a lot to think about, and he is one of the few we would be happy to have back year after year. North Dakota Retail Lumbermen's Assn., Fargo, N. D., Maynard A. Finch One of the best speakers we ever had. Economic Club of Lansing, Mich., Claud R. Erickson Excellent as usual. San Francisco, Calif., Town Hall, Forum of the West, Dr. Albert Rappaport Truthfully, I can tell you that never since the day of William Jennings Bryan has there been such an orator as Kazmayer. The audience immediately voted for his return. Brcoklyn, N. Y., St. Mark's Methodist Church, Rev. Ralph Emerson Davis Robert Kazmayer brought our Institute program to a new all time high. His lecture was everything that could be expected or desired.
