Nugent, Joseph F. Supplement. Rev. Wm. S. Potter. Dr. Walter H. Nugent delivered his lecture, The Prodigal Daughter, in my church. I regard him as a lecturer of much ability and great promise. He has a fine presence, a good voice, an excellent vocabulary, fine descriptive powers, pathos and enthusiasm. Pastor First Presbyterian Church, Battle Creek, Mich. W. A. Byron. One of the pleasures of the season was the privilege of hearing the lecture by Rev. Walter H. Nugent, of Chicago. He is able, eloquent and convincing, and stands in the front ranks of the platform orators of this country. State Senator 26th Senatorial District, Kentucky. Hon. Peter White, Marquette, Mich. I listened to Dr. W. H. Nugent lecture on Steps to Success with great pleasure and profit. He delighted the large audience, who heard him. Regent of the University of Michigan. The Lyceumite. Chicago. Rev. Walter H. Nugent is one of the comparatively new men, who is making a big hit on the lecture platform. He has lectured three times within three months in Battle Creek, Mich., one lecture being repeated. The Eigin, Ill., Daily Courier. Dr. Nugent pictured his subject very vividly. Battle Creek, Mich., Daily Moon. Dr. Nugent again delighted the Battle Creek people with his lecture, Steps to Success. He has a strong personality, a pleasing appearance, and by his humor and logical thinking completely captivates his audience. He speaks with inspiration and powerful effect. Dr. Nugent has lectured here before, and is always sure of a crowded house. The Chicago Chronicle. Dr. Walter H. Nugent is a man of strong personality and progressive spirit. He possesses a rare ability to address children, and consequently is much in demand at all such gatherings in the city. S. E. Seaton. Our High School was most fortunate in securing Dr. Walter H. Nugent, of Chicago, for its commencement exercises. His address was forceful and logical, but at the same time witty and entertaining. Only words of highest commendation are heard from the large audience that crowded the Opera House to hear this rare treat. Superintendent of Schools, Kahoka, Missouri. Gazette-Herald, Kahoka, Missouri. Dr. Nugent sustained his broad reputation as a lecturer and for an hour and thirty minutes commanded the closest attention from a crowded Opera House. In fact he held the audience spell-bound. He proved a splendid entertainer and much of an orator. Battle Creek, Mich., Daily Journal. The lecture delivered by Rev. Dr. Nugent, of Chicago, on The Prodigal Daughter, was one of the most brilliant that Battle Creek people have ever been privileged to hear. His word-pictures were graphic and interesting. His address furnished food for much thought. Geo. H. Glazier, of The Glazier Lyceum Bureau. Dr. Walter H. Nugent delivered his lecture, The Prodigal Daughter, at the Chautauqua, Elgin, Ill., and so delighted the immense crowd, and gave such excellent satisfaction, that I have already engaged him and will give him a conspicuous place on our program for 1906. Manager Chautauqua, Elgin, Ill. Fannie Sprague Talbot. Dr. Nugent lectured, under the auspices of the Federation of Women's Clubs, before the largest gathering of women ever assembled in this city, in the large Sanitarium. He is a most interesting speaker. His lecture teems with originality in sentiment and expression and he holds the attention of his listeners throughout with his eloquence. They laugh at his wit and cry at his pathetic word-portraiture. President of the Home Dep't Woman's League.
