The Baroness C de Hueck
Baroness de Hueck
Lecturer — Author — Linguist Interpreter to the British Forces in the World War In Sketches of Russian Life Personal Reminiscences—The Tragedy of Russia
The Baroness de Hueck is a titled Russian refugee, whose story of Russia before and during the war, as she is giving it before Literary Clubs and on the Chautauqua and Lyceum platforms, is a most graphic and fascinating recital.
Her intimate acquaintance with the social and political life of her nation; her service as a war nurse and interpreter during the war for which she was decorated for bravery under fire, have combined to give her a wealth of experience and a fund of information that makes her lecture one of the most impressive and vivid recitals of the American platform.
Following her lecture, the Baroness, in the costume of her native country, appears upon the platform to answer questions put to her about Russia. She welcomes these questions as keys to that information about her country of especial interest to Americans. This part of her program is most interesting.
Press and Personal Comment
The Baroness de Hueck, a beautiful Russian noblewoman, who is making her home in Toronto, quite captured the large audience that turned out to her celebrated talk on Personal Experiences. … We predict for her a brilliant future as an entertainer.—
The Toronto Saturday Night.
The entertainment given by the Baroness de Hueck was full of interest and surprise. Her appearance in her native costume of the Russian nobility was indeed regal and created a sensation, as well as her question box. She held her audience spellbound throughout the whole two hours of her talk. Two return engagements have been secured by her upon termination of her Western tour… The Baroness spoke twice, in French and in English; both were the success of the year.—
Winnipeg Free Press.
Charming in appearance, gracious in manner, the Baroness de Hueck won the hearts of her entire audience by her celebrated talk given to the open meeting of the Women's Canadian Club in the Nickel Range Club Room on Friday evening… Rev. Wm. McDonald acted as chairman, and at the close of the evening expressed the appreciation of the audience for her intensely interesting entertainment, which had been one of the finest ever given before the Women's Canadian Club.—
