Excerpt from Representative College Orations
The Specimen College Orations, contained in an appen dix to the editor's The Rhetoric of Oratory, suggested the publication, in a separate volume, of a larger collection of representative college orations. The sixty-three orations in the present volume will furnish a better opportunity for comparison and a far greater variety of illustrative matter than was possible in the volume first referred to.
Although collections of college orations representing cer tain sections or organizations. Have been published from time to time, the present volume is the first to cover the whole field of American college oratory. It would be impossible, of course, to include in a single volume orations from all the colleges, or even from all that are doing good work along oratorical lines; nevertheless, the orations herein contained are, it is believed, fairly representative of our colleges, both individually and collectively.
