Figure L. H. MOORE Commercial Traveler - Lecturer Something New Under the Sun Figure Management MUTUAL LYCEUM BUREAU 55 Auditorium Building CHICAGO L. H. MOORE INTRODUCTION THERE is no class of men in America today which has done more for the prosperity of this country than the American Drummer. The story of the rise of the commercial interests of the United States is one of thrilling interest. Never before has this story been told upon the Chautauqua or Lyceum platform. Mr. L. H. Moore, the Commercial Traveler-Lecturer, comes to the Chautauquas with this message and we predict that his lectures will be an instant success upon the platform, as they have been in the past, wherever he has been giving them. Finishing school at the age of nineteen, he left the parental roof determined to do something for himself, and so well did he succeed that in one year he became a full-fledged commercial traveler, checking his first piece of baggage out of the city of Memphis a quarter of a century ago. He is now representative of a St. Louis manufacturing and jobbing establishment, one of the largest of its kind in the country. Ex-President of the Arkansaw Travelers' Association, he has given his lectures many times before associations of various kinds, and always with the very highest success. He is a typical drummer and one of the most successful of his line in the South, and a gifted speaker upon the platform. His story of the commercial interests of this country is founded upon solid basis of fact, illuminated by the jolliest and freshest of drummers' yarns, and made popular by a personality that never fails to make friends with his audience. In presenting this feature we are giving our committee something which will be entirely new, which will interest the patrons of any Chautauqua or Lyceum course, and will abundantly satisfy any audience. THE MUTUAL LYCEUM BUREAU Chicago SUBJECTS OF LECTURES The Great American Drummer Woman, God Bless Her The Arkansaw Traveler Press and Personal Notices To Whom It May Concern. Ozark, Arkansas, December 11, 1907. Louis H. Moore, President of the Arkansaw Travelers' Association, delivered his noted lecture, The Great American Drummer, to the delight of a splendid audience of his townsmen at the opera house November 15, 1907. His lecture was heartily appreciated, and interspersed with frequent applause. Occasionally his humorous hits sent his auditors into hysterical fits of laughter. At the close, his host of friends rushed to grasp his hand, extend congratulations, and thank him for the treat which they had just enjoyed. His success as a lecturer is already assured, and his popularity is growing by leaps and bounds. C. S. BASS, Pastor of the Presbyterian Church. Jackson Clarion Ledger, Jackson, Miss., Dec. 14, 1907. One of the greatest lectures ever heard in this city was delivered last night at Castle Pythian Hall by Hon. L. H. Moore, the commercial traveler-lecturer, his subject being The Great American Drummer. Mr. Moore received round after round of applause during the delivery and a great demonstration when he finished. L. H. MOORE MAKES SPEECH. President of Arkansaw Travelers at Mammoth Spring Chautauqua. (Arkansas Gazette.) Mammoth Spring, August 3, 1907. Louis H. Moore, President of the Arkansaw Travelers, made a most eloquent and effective speech here today before the Chautauqua gathering. His delivery was excellent and he was a perfect master of his subject. The Chautauqua managers were so well pleased that he is sure to be invited again next year. At the close of his lecture he was offered an engagement for a series of lectures. Hon. L. H. Moore's Lecture. Hon. L. H. Moore delivered his lecture, The Great American Drummer, to a large audience at the opera house in this city last Friday night. It was the speaker's first appearance on the lecture platform to his home people, and the lecture was highly interesting throughout, and was pronounced first-class by all who had the pleasure of hearing it. As a platform orator Mr. Moore is a success, and his lecture is one that is calculated to lift mankind to higher thoughts and lead fellowman to noble ambitions. Third Baptist Church, St. Louis, Oct. 21, 1907. Mr. L. H. Moore's lecture, The Great American Drummer, will interest and instruct any American audience. He is thoroughly acquainted with the life he depicts, having spent many years as a successful commercial traveler. Those who have the opportunity to hear him will be highly entertained. He treats his theme in a masterful manner. WILLIAM J. WILLIAMSON. PLEASES HOME AUDIENCE. L. H. Moore Delivers His Lecture to Large Audience of Townspeople—Proceeds to Church. L. H. Moore, commercial traveler-lecturer, and citizen of Ozark, delivered his message, The Great American Drummer, before a large and appreciative audience at the local opera house last Friday night. After a brief introduction, embellished with a few local hits, the speaker entered into the principal work of his mission. For more than an hour his characterization of the American drummer of today furnished the foundation of an address that, in the belief of his friends, is destined to elevate him to a foremost position among the lecturers of this time. The lecture was conducted under the auspices of the Presbyterian Church and proceeds were given to that organization. Jeff Davis, U. S. Senator from Arkansas. While Hon. L. H. Moore is comparatively new in the lecture field, he is evidently destined to be a favorite. He enters into his subject with all his soul and holds his audience by the power of his eloquence. Those who fail to hear him in The Great American Drummer when the opportunity affords, will miss a great treat. Arkadelphia, Arkansas, October 1, 1907. I have had the pleasure of listening to the Hon. L. H. Moore on several public occasions. I regard him as one of the most delightful and entertaining speakers I have heard. He has a fine sense of humor, his diction is elegant and choice, his manner persuasive and convincing, and his delivery powerful and effective. As a Chautauqua lecturer or public entertainer, I know of no man who could entertain an audience so well. Mr. Moore is a man of fine personality and is very popular among his acquaintances, being at this time President of the Arkansaw Travelers. In his famous lecture, The Great American Drummer, he is at his best, and I heartily commend him to a criticising public. JOHN H. HINEMON, President of Henderson College, and Ex-Supt. of Public Instruction. Press and Personal Notices Dr. L. G. Herbert, Traveler Lecturer under Management of Mutual Lyceum Bureau, Chicago, has this to say: Mammoth Spring, Ark., August 2, 1907. I have today listened with great interest to Mr. L. H. Moore, the commercial man, in his lecture, The American Drummer. The lecture is fine and novel, a new thing under the sun, and well worthy of an attentive hearing. It was delivered before a large and enthusiastic audience at the Chautauqua at the above city. Mr. Moore is a splendid man, a Christian gentleman and an American citizen of highest ideals. He has a future on the platform and I heartily commend him and his message. L. G. HERBERT. SPEAKS TO A CROWDED HOUSE. Hon. Louis H. Moore Addresses People of Conway. Audience of Nearly One Thousand Listens to Eloquence of One of Faulkner County's Sons. (Log Cabin Democrat, Conway, Ark.) Before an audience which packed every available inch of seating and standing room, Hon. Louis H. Moore, president of the Arkansaw Travelers, delivered his lecture, The Great American Drummer, at the Electric Theatre in this city last Thursday night. The small capacity of the theatre was responsible for the fact that twice as many people did not hear him, although nearly 1000 persons were packed in the hall. The address of Mr. Moore was eloquent and thoughtful, enlivened by the keenest of wit and most laughable anecdotes of the drummer's life. His audience gave him the closest attention and liberal applause. From the Atkins Chronicle, April 24, 1908, Atkins, Ark. Hon. L. H. Moore, President of the Arkansaw Travelers Association, delivered his lecture, The Great American Drummer, last Friday evening to an unusually large audience, for a lecture, in the Auditorium of the High School building. It may be safely said that there has never been delivered, in our city, a lecture so highly appreciated and so thoroughly enjoyed by its hearers as was this lecture. At the close his many friends in the audience, rushed to grasp his hand, extend congratulations and thank him for the most excellent treat which they had enjoyed. Shreveport Evening News, Shreveport, La., April 5, 1908. Travis Street High School Auditorium was last night taxed to its fullest capacity to hear Hon. Louis H. Moore, the commercial-traveler-lecturer deliver his celebrated lecture, The Great American Drummer. After a brief introduction by Mr. H. H. O'Neal, Mr. Moore proceeded with his lecture, which was beyond doubt, one of the best delivered here this season. The many congratulations received after he had finished were an evidence of the appreciation by the audience. Arkansas Democrat, Little Rock, Ark. American Drummer An Eloquent Lecture. An appreciative audience listened to Hon. L. H. Moore, the distinguished commercial traveler and lecturer, in his address at the Y. M. C. A. auditorium last evening on the Great American Drummer, the lecture being under the auspices of the A. R. Presbyterian Church. Mr. Moore was formerly president of the Arkansaw Travelers and is a born drummer of the highest type. His style is rather epigrammatic and some of his epigrams are delightfully original and cogent. He is a good story-teller, although he soon lets you know that his chief purpose in lecturing on the great American genus, the traveling man, that he is not out merely to tell funny stories or spin the traditional drummer's yarn. He has a much more serious purpose—that of giving the American public a true perspective of the commercial nomad. In closing Mr. Moore paid a pretty tribute to the wives and sweethearts of the American drummers, and particularly of the drummers of Arkansas. Ouachita College, Arkadelphia, Ark., July 1, 1908. Mr. L. H. Moore, the genial President of the Arkansaw Travelers has a practical, sensible, witty lecture on the American Drummer. Mr. Moore knows what he is talking about, and this makes his lecture well worth the hearing. One object of education is to learn how to recognize men of worth and ability. Mr. Moore helps us to a sympathetic appreciation of that large class of splended citizens, the Commercial Travelers. Mr. Moore's lecture should command widespread attention. HENRY S. HARTZOG, President.
