1930's Figure A Speaker with a Purpose MAN'S PROGRESS THROUGH THE AGES A Lecture That Carries a Universal Appeal OUT OF DARKNESS OF YESTERYEAR INTO THE SCIENTIFIC MIRACLES OF TODAY By HARRY C. WHITE ASSISTED BY MRS. HARRY C. WHITE PHILOSOPHER SCIENTIST LECTURER Whose Talks Have Inspired Hundreds of Thousands Mr. White's rare faculty of first winning the attention and interest of his audience enables him to drive home with dynamic forcefulness the interesting message that he conveys to his listeners. There is substance to his message There is inspiration. There is force and dramatic power. And the information, the philosophy and inspiration which he brings are elev ted to the highest degree by the earnestness, humor, and high character of his moral teachings. NEW WONDERS OF THE SCIENCE OF ELECTRICITY, CHEMISTRY AND LIGHT THE MAN WHO HAS MADE MILLIONS THINK 5000 YEARS OF LIGHT PLATFORM A COMPLETE LABORATORY HARRY C. WHITE HOLDING SMALL TRANSMITTER TELEFLASH PUTTING FLUORESCENCE TO WORK Man's Progress Through the Ages NEW WONDERS OF THE SCIENCE OF ELECTRICITY, CHEMISTRY AND LIGHT PLENTY OF EQUIPMENT PIPED LIGHT An Inspirational Lecture by Harry C. White THE nature of this lecture, which pertains not only to the accomplishments of the men of science of today, but to the men and women of the dark ages who helped to combat physical darkness. Mr. White uses in this lecture paraphernalia valued at many thousands of dollars. He brings a COMPLETE RESEARCH LABORATORY. He demonstrates and vividly portrays, with word pictures, new scientific facts that you have heard little or nothing about in this cavalcade of events. The lecture has a very unique beginning for on a darkened stage a FAGGOT, man's first light, brings us out of the darkness of long ago. With a very unusual collection of old lamps, some that were used in 600 B. C., early clay lamps, originals. His collection of old lamps, HIS HOBBY, is rated as one of the rarest and best. After the Clay lamps the Betty Iron Lamps, Lard oil, Whale oil, and Camphine Lamps, Candle Molds rarely if ever seen now-a-days and a light clock used in Colonial times. An original Edison Cotton Filiment Lamp and a unique collection of original fibres and grasses used by Thomas Alva Edison to make the first lamps. Mr. White Lights an Edison Lamp. Then the second to the largest lamp in the world, 100,000 candle power, 30,000 watts, will be shown and explained The proof of MAN'S PROGRESS is then shown with mans latest findings, things that are new in the world of science, PIPED LIGHT, actually transmitting light through a knot made of LUCITE, then piping it across the platform. Mr. White carries with him the smallest broadcasting station ever made by man. About the size of an average hand, with this his audience is permitted to broadcast from their seats to a receiving station on the platform and from there the voice will be carried back to them. Another new instrument is the TELEFLASH, made especially for this lecture, will permit music to be transmitted, voice that can actually be seen as it passes through space on beam of light. DANCING LIGHT — (electrons) Looking at sound actually seeing music and countless other miracles including the graft of human heart. Mr. White is using a large and special OSCILLOGRAPH, an instrument of this size seldom leaves the laboratory. The new TELETOUCH, an instrument that transmits electric waves, unseen to a human eye and yet when intercepted by a hand or a body unusual things happen. This instrument together with his latest electric eye keeps his hearers in the edge of their chairs and yet it is all a part of the PROGRESS OF MAN. WHEN THE AUDITORIUM CAN BE DARKENED Mr. White demonstrates the wonder world of chemical and COLOR, showing unsuspected marvels in gorgeous colors, this is all new. Mr. White, as President and General Manager of the U. V. Color Company of New Jersey and discoverer of many unusual things in the law of fluorescence has access to the best in the world of color. His handpainted tapestries and gorgeous robes, like many of the instruments outlined above, have never before been offered to the general public. THIS IS A NEW LECTURE. This material serves to illustrate some of the steps forward in the PROGRESS of civilization from the day that man first developed a medium by which he uses artificial light and thus established himself master over the power of darkness. It would be difficult to duplicate Mr White's collection of scientific equipment, and yet, his demonstration, while of tantamount interest to the technical, scientifically minded audience, are so ably given, that they are equally fascinating to the veriest layman. WHERE A GENUINELY INSPIRATIONAL TALK with a new, impressive, and dramatic presentation is needed, this lecture admirably fills the demand of the occasion. Philosopher Scientist Lecturer A Word Picture of HARRY C. WHITE MR. WHITE has been on the lecture platform for thirty years. His activities as spe ker have been international in scope, for in addition to appearing before audiences in practically every leading city in the United States, he has addressed groups in the principal countries of Europe.

F. transport was torpedoed, he and his chums were in the water for hours. He received recognition from his own and the French Governments for his services in the World War. Since the close of the war Mr. White had been associated with the Edison Lamp Works of the General Electric Company as Supervisor of Industrial Relations. In this capacity he has been in close touch with the leading scientists of the country with whose work and experiments he is thoroughly conversant. For five years he was Good Will Ambassador for the General Electric a position that earned for him the title of the most traveled man in the Edison Division. Harry White knew personally and intimately Thomas A. Edison and Charles Proteus Steinmetz, as well as many of the Edison Pioneers with whom he worked.
