Ticket to “Ladies Night: An Evening with Brother Capt. Jack Crawford”

Ticket, April 16, 1910, Elmo Scott Watson Papers, Box 18, Folder 244, Edward E. Ayer Collection, Newberry Library.

On the back of the ticket was printed a poem by Capt. Jack Crawford, 'Sunshine Boomerang.' The New York Lyceum Bureau promoted Capt. Jack Crawford as a speaker in 1910 with a testimonial from Senator Robert LaFollette, who wrote: “Capt. Jack Crawford is one of the most pleasing lecturers, the most unique and magnetic of the personalities on the lyceum platform today. His quaint philosophy, the sunshine and pathos of his poetry and stories, and the broad patriotism of his lectures make an irresistible appeal.”
