REV. ARTHUR S. HENDERSON figure Rev. Arthur Sherman Henderson W AS born in Ohio in 1865. Though still comparatively a young man he has had a wide experience as a preacher and public speaker. Before he was yet twenty years of age he was preaching with eloquence and power, and was early in demand as a speaker upon public and patriotic occasions, and before High Schools, Colleges and assemblies of young people. Of scholarly instincts and a deep student of History and of Life, and of pleasing manner and address, he is thoroughly at home upon the lecture platform. From the commendations which follow it will be seen that his lectures are thoughtful and scholarly in conception and popular in treatment and delivery. Having all the elements of a popular lecturer he does not fail to please all classes of hearers. As the pastor of a church prominent in his denomination in his state he can devote only a small part of his time to the lecture platform. A limited number of dates will be made for him during the lecture season with larger liberty for engagements for Chautauqua work. SUBJECTS The Measure of A Man. Ultimate America or The Inspiration of Heroic History. FOR CHAUTAUQUA SUNDAYS, Y. M. C. A.'s, ETC. Why a Twentieth Century Man Should Study The Bible. The Optimism of Christian Faith. Saving Lost Forces and Utilizing Unused Values. PERSONAL CO E. S. Randall, Vice President Southwest Iowa Chautauqa, Sidney, Iowa— Rev. Arthur Sherman Henderson gave his great lecture, The Measure of a Man, at our Chautauqua on the evening of July 25, and our people were delighted. Mr. Henderson is a good reasoner, an orator of splendid ability, and his lecture ranked with the best. I have no hesitancy in saying that Mr. Henderson will please any audience. I believe he is a coming man on the lecture phtform. Committees need not fear saying too much in favor of Mr. Henderson for he will surely 'make good' all promises. Dr. E. F. Cowger, Riverton, Iowa, Chairman Program Com. Fremont Co. Veterans' Association— Rev. Arthur Sherman Henderson delivered at our reunion this summer, a lecture entitled Ultimate America; or The Inspiration of Heroic History, which was easily the best thing on our program. The platform upon which he proposes that Christian civilization shall stand in its battle against ocial and political evils, is certainly something new under the sun in the way of a party platform. He is a most forceful and attractive speaker to whom we are always ready to listen. His manner of handling current problems is a reversal of Kingsley in 'Old Foes with a New Face'. President Gen. N. Ellis, Tabor College Tabor, Iowa— Mr Henderson is a vigorous, clear thinker, and a pleasing and forceful speaker. He is optimistic and will bring young men a message that will do them good. Perhaps no better proof of my esteem for him can be given than by the fact that I have put him on the lecture course along with Dr. Barton of Chicago, President King of Oberlin, and others equally as noted. John M. Anderson, Rockport, Mc. President Dragoo Reunion Association— Rev. Arthur S. Henderson's lecture on 'Ultimate America' given before our Association was very highly appreciated. You will make no mistake in securing Mr. Henderson for your lecture course. President J. M. Hussey, Western Normal College, Shenandoah, Iowa— Rev. Arthur S. Henderson is one of the most spicy and interesting speakers who appear before our students. His lecture, 'The Measure of a Man' recently given here is most helpful in giving young people true estimates of life. Dr. Ora Samuel Gray, Amherst, Mass., Noted Lecturer, and author of Ghosts of Lost Opportunities, — Rev. Arthur Sherman Henderson is an unusually brilliant lecturer. It was my pleasure to hear him at one of the large Chautauquas when he held an immense evening audience under the spell of his oratory for more than an hour, and at the close we had not only the memory of a delightful hour, but a new grasp of certain great truths, and fresh inspiration for life's battle. Lou J. Beauchamp, Hamilton, Ohio, The famous humorous lecturer— The lectures of Arthur S. Henderson are full of good things to profit the sculs, broaden the minds and sweeten the lives of those who are fortunate enough to hear them. He has a message and knows how to deliver it. Wallace Bruce Amsbary, the well known reader and entertainer, and author of Ballads of Bourbonnias — It was my pleasure to hear Rev. Arthur S. Henderson in his lecture, 'The Measure of a Man.' It is a thoughtful, finely presented piece of oratory and held the interest of his large audience at Sidney Chautauqua to the end. Rev. Arthur a— On monoay our own Rev. Arthur S. Henderson gave his lecture on 'The Measure of a Man' (it the Sidney, Iowa Chautauqua) sandwiched in between such noted speakers as Rev. Robert McIntyre and Mr. Lou J. Beaucamp. Mr. Henderson was put to a test that would try most speakers. He held his own nobly however and the audience filling the large tent give him close attention throughout. The subject matter of this lecture is scholarly, the language pure and attractive and the delivery stong and impressive. The St. Joseph Gazette, St. Joseph, Mo. —Rev. A. S. Henderson, one of the best known pulpit orators of Iowa, spoke yesterday afternoon to a large crowd of men at the Y. M. C. A. The subject chosen by Rev. Henderson was 'Why a Twentieth Century Man Should Study The Bible,' and marked the opening of the Bible classes of the Association. Rev. Mr. Henderson is a vigorous and optimistic speaker and especially popular. Shenandoah Post, Shenandoah, Iowa —Rev. Henderson is one of the ablest pulpit orators we have ever heard. He is a scholar, a student, a man of courage, and speaks as one having authority. The World, Shenandoah, Iowa —The comments on this lecture (The Measure of a Man) were all very complimentary to our Congregational minister. Robert McIntyre lectured the day before and Lou J. Beauchamp the same afternoon, but even if he was with such distinguished company yet the consensus of opinion was that he was worthy the company. The Fremont County Herald, Sidney, Iowa —Monday evening the crowd was as large as usual. The Dunbars and Mr. Amsbary opened the program. Rev. Arthur Sherman Henderson then gave his lecture, 'The Measure of a Man.' (After a synopsis of the lecture are the following words) Rev. Mr. Henderson is a strong and eloquent speaker and delivered a very scholarly lecture. Lewis Standard, Lewis, Iowa —The lecture on 'The Measure of a Man' delivered Friday night at the Congregational Church by Rev. Arthur S. Henderson was one of the best of the winter. In strength of argument and wealth of illustration he compared favorably with any of the speakers on our course and he gives promise of gaining distinguished success on the lecture platform.
