Figure AUTHOR OF Palms and Temples The School of Sympathy etc. JULIAN B. ARNOLD Lecturer and Entertainer Traveller, Essayist and Poet JULIAN B. ARNOLD MR. ARNOLD is a man of rare platform gifts, possessing a vein of humor as well as of pathos, both of which are irresistible.— GRAND RAPIDS HERALD. JULIAN B. ARNOLD, the son of the late Sir Edwin Arnold, the famous poet and savant, was born at Framfield in Sussex, the estate of his grandfather, a country squire of the type from which Great Britain derives so notable a proportion of the strength of her race. Mr. Julian B. Arnold is now a citizen of the U. S. of A. His earliest nurse was an Indian Ayah, from whom he first learned to lisp Hindustani. He has related that his mother used to give him a piece of chocolate whenever he would speak to her in English instead of in Hindustani, and to judge by the English of Julian B. Arnold's writings and addresses he must have consumed, as an infant, quite an appreciable amount of chocolate. Educated at Marlborough College, and subsequently in France and Italy, Julian B. Arnold early attained note in those philosophical, racial and historical studies which, vivified by his wide travels in the Orient and Occident, give to his Travelogues and Lectures their authority, brilliance and instructive force. Privileged in opportunities, Mr. Arnold aided in the success of the expedition of George Smith, which excavated the ancient ruins of Assyria; he assisted in the organization of the expedition of Sir Henry M. Stanley, which discovered the course of the Congo, and later was actively interested in the archæological explorations of Egypt. A wanderer in the by-paths of many countries, Mr. Arnold has an intimate acquaintance with the traditions, economics and ethics of four continents. During the Great War Mr. Arnold was engaged by the Illinois State Council of Defense to lecture in American cities, and, by his oratory and acquaintance with the far-flung battle fronts, made real to many the sowing and harvests of the war. His Addresses, Travelogues and Dramatic Sketches are noted for the wideness of his mental canvas yet accurate detail, and for the sympathetic colors he uses in picturing his varied subjects. By his earnestness, eloquence and knowledge he has moved numberless people to a far-visioned understanding of the complex problems of the day. Julian B. Arnold in His Arab Dress. He brings an exceptional and personal acquaintance with many lands and their peoples; a full knowledge of their histories and ambitions; and a long training in the understanding of the threads which make up the tangle of international interests. He has traveled in over twenty countries and has known many of the men and women who have made the history of the world during the past fifty years.
