McFADDEN 134 North La Salle St. · Chicago, Illinois · FRanklin 2-5122 Figure Dr. Arthur C. Twomey, explorer-scientist, ornithologist, author, and pictorial artist, brings to his audiences thrilling and personally photographed color films of far away places with an authentic and brilliant commentary. His broad scientific background, his flair for artistic photography and his interest in the peoples of the world combine to make his lectures not only educational, but entertaining and diverting. The fact that the Washington University Association has invited Dr. Twomey to lecture four times in as many years proves that we consider his work to be of the highest merit, from the point of view both of photography and worthwhile commentary.
