FOREST AVENUE BRAZIL, INDIANA TELEPHONE 9116 DON BOLT HAS RECENTLY RETURNED FROM 2nd TOUR OF THE MARSHALL PLAN COUNTRIES! DON BOLT was born in Brazil, Indiana, where he attended high school, and while a student there entered the British Merchant Marine service early in 1915, being in Cardiff, Wales, at the time of the sinking of the Lusitania. At the conclusion of this service, he returned to his studies, but again his schooling was interrupted when the United States entered the First World War. He served in the U. S. Army. Upon his discharge from war service he entered Washington University in St. Louis, then Indiana University. He then entered newspaper work, and was on such metropolitan papers as the St. Louis Globe-Democrat, Pittsburgh Post, Chicago Herald Examiner, and the Indianapolis News. When radio was young, he became news editor and commentator with radio stations in Springfield, Illinois; Kansas City, Mo., and as commentator with N.B.C. at Chicago. Ten years ago he returned to his early love for travel and observation, together with lecturing. He is a recognized expert on Latin-American affairs. He was visiting professor in Inter-American Affairs at the University of Kansas City in 1948. He has made many trips to South and Central America, and during the recent war was a volunteer lecturer for the Office of the CoOrdinator of Inter-American Affairs. He gave many lectures before Army Personnel throughout the United States. With the conclusion of the war, Mr. Bolt returned to Europe, where he made an on-the-spot study of conditions. He was there during the summer and fall of 1947, and spent the entire summer of 1948 observing the Marshall Plan in action. For eight years, Mr. Bolt has been a special lecturer on various phases of international relations under auspices of Rotary International. Mr. Bolt held his audience spellbound today. He cleverly introduced advertising into an address which covered a multitude of economic and foreign relations subjects. The comments I received were outstanding. C. L. Thomas Chr.
