EVERYONE FROM EMERSON TO ELEANOR:
Prominent Speakers Have e en Presented Here Annually Since 1854
By FRANCES PAINE
The appearance here of a number
of nationally prominent speakers
each year in the Oratorical Associa-
tion Lecture Series had its beginning
back in 1854, when the Students'
Lecture Association was founded by
According to the Nov. 24, 1854, is-
sue of the Argus, an early Ann Ar-
bor paper, "The students of the Lit-
erary Department of the University
have taken the subject of popular
lectures in hand and made all neces-
sary arrangements for the com-
mencement of a lecture course im-
Founding of the SLA, which con-
tinued for 60 years before being re-
organized into the present Oratorical
Association, was part of a nation-
wide movement for adult education
which was known as the "lyceum
movement." It has been called "one
of the most significant 19th century
instruments for the dissemination of

Cut" at the

In the first decade of its existence
the SLA lectures were mostly con-
cerned with ethics and moral mat-
ters. Ralph Waldo Emerson made
several appearances here, and the
program in those early years also
included Bayard Taylor, Horace
Mann,.Wendell Phillips, Henry Ward
Beecher and Josiah Holland.
In the second decade literary sub-
jects were greatly in demand, and
among others Mark Twain, Bret
Harte, James Murdoch, the famous
actor and elocution teacher, and the
well-known actress Mrs. Mary F.
Scott-Siddons gave lectures here.
Auditoriums of local churches were
used for the SLA lectures until 1873,
when University Hall was dedicated.
"The Students' Lecture Association
has long held the reputation of giving
the best and most expensive pro-
gram in the United States," accord-
ing to the 1902 Michiganensian. "The
University's central location, its rep--
utation and the large number of stu-
dents made it the favored place of
the most important deliveries of our
greatest men and women, and gave
it the name of the best forum in the
Puerto Rican Speech
"Here Grover Cleveland made the
speech which inaugurated his second
successful campaign for president,
and Benjamin Harrison made the
famous Puerto Rican speech which
awakened world-wide comment," the
The SLA ceased to exist about
1912, but only after the broadening
interests of the University began to
attract many prominent visitors
whose addresses were usually given
free of charge. The Oratorical As-
sociation, which had been founded
in 1889 to conduct student contests
in public speaking, took over its
functions after the first world war.
Prof. Thomas Trueblood, professor
emeritus of the speech department,
was instrumental in this later devel-
opment of the lecture series. A $20,
000 scholarship for speech students,
named in his honor, was recently es-
tablished by the Oratorical Associa-
The seven-fold classification-eth-
ics, literature, travel, history, poli-
tics and foreign affairs, humor and
science - which covered most of the
lectures of the early period still ap-
plies. Speakers in more recent years
include Presidents Harrison, McKin-
ley, Cleveland and Wilson, and later,
Admiral Richard Byrd, Ruth Bryan
Owen, Thomas Mann, Victor Heuser,
Lowell Thomas, Alexander Woolcott,
Will Rogers, Edna St. Vincent Mil-
lay, Mrs. Franklin D. Roosevelt, Eve
Curie, Dorothy Thompson, H. V. Kal-
tenborn and Leland Stowe, and many
others of national prominence.
This year's series will open Oct.
17 with an address by Gov. Ellis Ar-
nall of Georgia. Others who will
appear are Randolph Churchill,
Louis Lochner, Brig.-Gen. Roger M.
Ramey, John Mason Brown, Mrs.
Raymond Clapper, Melvin Purvis,
and Margaret Webster.
