Scope and content

The addresses in this series are largely public talks, some of which were written on cards, that were delivered in conjunction with lantern slide shows that were highly popular at the turn of the century. The subjects are art, architecture, literature and history, the locales largely Italian, with a few nods to Spain. The single non-Romance address is on German proverbs. The talks on Michelangelo and Raphael were much in demand. They were delivered as part of the University's popular Saturday Lecture Series and, along with others, at numerous locales across southern Ontario. Student organizations, especially the Modern Languages Club, were also frequent venues.

There is also [box 005, folder 01] a selection of cards with press clippings of quotations, current events and amusing anecdotes that were collected for use, in part, in his university lectures and in public talks. Only a few of are dated; those that are range from 1905 to 1911. Most are written in English, but some are in Italian, Spanish, and French.
