BUSINESS LECTURE IN UNION THIS EVENING
Prominent and Successful Graduates to Discuss the Openings for Well-Trained Men.
President Howard Elliott '81, of the New York, New Haven and Hartford Railroad, and Chairman of the Visiting Committee of the Business School, will be the first speaker at the second vocational lecture to be held in the Living Room of the Union this evening at 8 o'clock.
The second speaker, Mr. T. W. Lamont '90, President of the Associated Harvard Clubs, a member of the firm of J. P. Morgan and Company, and a member of the Visiting Committee of the Business School, will speak on "The Need of Trained Men in Business."
The third speaker will be H. S. Dennison '99, Treasurer of the Dennison Manufacturing Company, Vice-President of the Boston Chamber of Commerce, and Lecturer in the Business School. His subject will be "The College Man in Business."
H. B. Gill '13, M.B.A. '14, of F. W. Norris and Company, Cambridge, will close the meeting with an address on "The Business School from a Graduate's Point of View."
