The Redpath Lyceum Bureau Presents Figure Dr. John F. Carson Lecturer—Minister DR. JOHN F. CARSON The Reverend Doctor John F. Carson is so well known throughout the United States and Canada that he needs no introduction here. His pastorate in Brooklyn covering a period of more that twenty years in one church and building up that church from small beginnings to its present magnificent constituency of more than two thousand members—speaks volumes in itself. His qualities as a thinker, a patriot, and an orator have long ago made him one of the religious and civic leaders of the church and the nation. Despite the immense pressure of his ministerial engagements, he has been induced to appear on the Lyceum platform. His coming will be hailed with delight, and his words will be of imperishable benefit to thousands of auditors. As Dr. John F. Carson's friend and neighbor, I say that his voice should be heard on every platform in the land and his lecture on America's Ideals should become public property. He stands in the front rank of the platform men of today. L PARKES Ceduea DR. JOHN F. CARSON The Times, Brooklyn, N. Y. In a spirited lecture delivered last evening in Association Hall the Rev John F. Carson, D. D. considered the fundamentals of the American nation in a lecture on the theme American Ideas and Ideals. In a sustained, patriotic address the speaker ran the garmit of immigration, free education, Americanism and living on the higher plane. Dr. Carson had a somewhat elastic lecture and when he found that it took in spots he moulded it so that it would take harder. So he applauded virtue for an hour or more, thus putting himself in line with William Jennings Bryan and the long-distance orators. In the interim when he was not giving sane, conservative advice, Dr. Carson told stories that convulsed his hearers with laughter. Dr. Carson's lecture last night, taking it all in all, was one of the most manly and thoughtful on the American life ever delivered in this city. The Eagle, Brooklyn, N. Y. When he rose to speak last evening a thousand American flags fluttered and waved before his eyes, everyone in the audience having been provided with one. His utterances, however, were so good that the flag waving wasn't noisy enough, so the people clapped till the hands of men were red and the gloves of women threatened to give way. The Interior, Chicago, Ill. The address was brilliantly incisive and fervently earnest. Dr. Carson's superb oratorical powers lent added weight to words whose practical truth and high idealism combined to enforce them irresistibly. The Telegraph, Youngstown, Ohio. Dr. John F. Carson in his lecture showed himself a remarkable speaker. He has a graceful bearing and his manner of delivery is naturally easy. He has a fluent and forcible flow of language. Dr. Carson possesses a magnetic personality and action, two things so essential for a successful speaker. The great throng seemed to actually move beneath the power of his penetrating eye and the pleasant and assuring flow of speech that he earnestly delivers. The Herald, Ridgewood, N. J. The lecture was persuasive, thoughtful, convincing, fine in spirit and eloquent in presentation. Dr. Carson is a middle-aged man, tall, erect, with keen cut features, an aquiline nose and kind eyes. At first glance he reminds one of refined portraits of the late General John A. Logan. The pleasing personality of the speaker added to the effect of thoughts and words. The Telegraph, Youngstown, Ohio. Dr. Carson's address was strong, direct, magnetic and convincing. His manner of speaking, devoid of flourishes and frill, more eloquent because of that fact and far more effective, was convincing to every hearer. Dr. Carson speaks straight from the shoulder and with the eloquence born of earnestness and tipped with truth. DR. JOHN F. CARSON Figure MANAGEMENT REDPATH LYCEUM BUREAU CHICAGO BOSTON PHILADELPHIA The Gazette, Port Jervis, N. Y. Dr. Carson is a well-built, strong, healthy appearing man of pleasing address and attractive manner. He has a remarkable, deep, musical bass voice which easily carries his words to the fathermost corners of the auditorium and yet is pleasant to those who are near. He is a fluent talker, passes from point to point in a logical and convincing way and always keeps in thorough touch with those whom he is addressing. Having heard him once, you have a deep and intense desire to hear him as often afterwards as possible. He has much to say that is worth remembering and says it in such an attractive and impressive way that you cannot help remembering it. In short he is one of the most able speakers of this age.
