1916 Figure FRENCH AND AMERICAN ART MODERN AUTHORS PROBLEMS OF TO DAY MEXICO ANDRÉ TRIDON LECTURER NEW LECTURES: THE STRENGTH OF GERMANY AND HER WEAKNESS WHY RUSSIA REVOLTED. ANDRÈ TRIDON 113 EAST 28th STREET NEW YORK CITY ANDRÉ TRIDON, a native of France, but for several years a naturalized American citizen, has won a recognized position on the lecture platform. This is due to two reasons: his talks are never theoretical or academic. His investigations have led him to many strange places, and to many foreign countries. And while traveling he has acquired a broad point of view. In speaking of art or literature he evinces eclectic taste rather than provincial adherence to one school; when discussing social problems he is very frank, even brutal, but does not confine himself to mere muck-raking: his criticisms are always constructive; his point of view is optimistic. An alumnus of the Paris, Clermont, Heidelberg and New York Universities, André Tridon has learnt the value of accuracy and finish. He does not deliver set speeches; nor does he indulge in inspirational rant. His presentation of his subject is spirited but never borders on sensationalism. André Tridon has contributed articles to the leading American periodicals on MODERN ART and LITERATURE and on SOCIAL PROBLEMS. He is the author of several books in English and in French. He has published English translations of French, German, Spanish and Russian works, and adaptations of European plays. André Tridon is very popular with Chautauqua audiences and has addressed, besides, The Open Forums of New England and the Middle West, The League for Political Education, the Ethical Culture Society, the Institute of Arts and Sciences of Columbia University, the People's Institute, the Brooklyn Institute, clubs, schools, colleges, churches, suffrage organizations, Y. M. C. A. groups and committees of the Alliance Française. AN APPRECIATION FROM REV. HAROLD MARSHALL Chairman of the Melrose Community Meetings, Melrose, Mass. André Tridon has won a deserved reputation for the brilliancy and sincerity of his work. AN APPRECIATION FROM ROBERT ERSKINE ELY Director of the League for Political Education, New York André Tridon lectured last week before the League for Political Education. He held the interest of his audience from his first sentence until the close of the lecture. Mr. Tridon has a good voice, he speaks without notes and has an intuitive sense of what is likely to appeal to his hearers. He is thoroughly well informed and his point of view is that of a broad, fair-minded, scholarly man. The success of his first lecture for us led us immediately to invite him to speak for us again. AN APPRECIATION FROM GEORGE W. COLEMAN Director of the Ford Hall Forum, Boston André Tridon caught the interest of his audience with his very first sentence and sustained it throughout an hour's discourse. The unusually large number who remained for the question period showed how deeply interested the audience was. We shall want to hear Mr. Tridon again. LECTURES ON ART (ILLUSTRATED) 1.

You have something to say and you know how to say it. There is no one more welcome to our Cooper Union platform than yourself. Very sincerely yours, EDWARD F. SANDERSON. THE RUTLAND NEWS: André Tridon has undeniable charm of manner, a spirited delivery and the broadminded, scholarly approach to his subject that assures interest and appreciation in handling. Wit, humor, sarcasm and oratory were blended in his address. THE DALLAS HERALD: André Tridon is one of the most entertaining and instructive lecturers whom Dallas has seen for many days. He kept the audience awake by his constant flow of humor. Then when he had them awake, he fed them on art, lots of it. ST. LOUIS MIRROR: André Tridon is always first on the spot whenever any news breaks in the intellectual world. THE MONTREAL GAZETTE: In his illustrated lecture on French Art, André Tridon set a standard of excellence for the 1916-1917 lecture season which is of good augury for its success. This lecture was given in the hall of the Ritz Carlton before an audience so large that over a hundred people were obliged to stand throughout the evening. Applause was constant for André Tridon used, in unison with his illustrations, words which were so apt, just and illuminating that the whole lecture, views and all, seemed to move forward as one work of art. THE SPRINGFIELD REPUBLICAN: André Tridon's second lecture at Mount Holyoke College gave even more pleasure than that of some weeks ago. In spite of the heavy storm, the chapel was well filled with members of the faculty and students of the college.

THE PITTSBURGH POST: André Tridon was the lecturer at the inaugural meeting of the season at the parish house of Trinity Church. The subject was well handled, the halo of history and romance which envelops Notre Dame was made eloquent; its old stones were made to speak. THE LOS ANGELES GRAPHIC: André Tridon is the best informed man in New York. THE NEWARK NEWS: André Tridon's lecture was instructive. There was an audience of 500 appreciative listeners who attested their interest by liberal applause. The address was in the best sense educational. THE PORTLAND DAILY PRESS: André Tridon is a most interesting lecturer and relates anecdotes of his experiences in the most entertaining way imaginable. THE SCOVILLE SCHOOL NEW YORK CITY My dear Mr. Tridon: If you could have heard the enthusiastic comments upon your most helpful lecture you could not doubt that it was appreciated by all the pupils who attended. They spoke with much interest of the beautiful reproductions of the Rodin statues and of the valuable information they received concerning Rodin's life, works and ideals. The interesting manner in which the material was presented and the speaker's power of holding attention were warmly praised by all. Sincerely yours, HELEN SCOVILLE.
