HENRY CLARK Lecturer and Humorist
Through his classic lecture, Play Ball. Henry Clark's name is almost a household word in this country. Possibly no man on the American platform has been listened to with keener delight than Clark. One of the most charming of men, and possessed of brains and oratorical power, his success as a lecturer is attested by a record of nearly six thousand lyceum and chautauqua engagements during the past twenty years. They not only have Clark once but they have him come back. Hundreds of towns have recalled him a second, third and fourth time. He is immensely popular. One prominent lyceum bureau booked Clark for ten years in succession and two chautauqua systems booked him for five years in succession.
PLAY BALL was the lecture that made Henry Clark famous. He has delivered it over two thousand times. That is why he is known all over America today as Play Ball Clark, and why the lecture is recognized as a lyceum and chautauqua classic. The lecture itself is based on the game of baseball. Clark's treatment of his subject is so interesting, so unique, and so effective that he desires the general theme of it to be kept a secret until he comes.
HENRY CLARK is an entertainer and humorist, as well as a lecturer. There isn't a dull moment when he is on the platform. He makes everybody have a good time. He makes the man who says he doesn't like lecturers exude apologies from every pore. Folks laugh as they listen and learn as they laugh. He deals in facts and fun, logic and laughter, instruction and inspiration.
CLARK has a number of fine lectures. Here are some of the subjects:
STOP, LOOK AND LISTEN
WHAT IS EDUCATION?
WHO DOES YOUR THINKING?
LET US SMILE
In addition to his regular inspirational lectures, Clark is a dramatic interpreter of very great ability. He has taken Channing Pollock's great religious play, The Fool, the biggest success in the history of the American stage, and he has made a lecture-recital out of it. By special permission of the author, Mr. Clark presents the play and interprets its spiritual significance.
As a speaker before men's organizations, conventions, and the like, Clark has hardly an equal. He is an extremely interesting man to meet, one whose achievements as a lecturer entitle him to rank as a King of the Platform.
The local lyceum patrons are already looking forward with the greatest pleasure in anticipation of Mr. Clark's coming, knowing that on that occasion will be an honor to the town and a credit to the lyceum course.—
