JOHN T. FLYNN TO SPEAK IN NEW LECTURE HALL
MEETING HELD UNDER AUSPICES OF LIBERAL CLUB
At a meeting sponsored by the Liberal Club, John T. Flynn, noted economist, will speak about current economic problems on Monday evening at 8.15 o'clock in the New Lecture Hall.
Mr. Flynn is the author of "God's Gold: John D. Rockefeller and His Times," "Security Speculation: Its Economic Effects," "Graft in Business," and "Investment Trusts Gone Wrong."
He has also written numerous articles for such magazines as Harper's, the Atlantic Monthly, Forum, Scribner's, and the New Republic, of which he is a contributing editor. Of particular interest was his article "Whose Child NRA," in the August issue of Harper's, in which he demonstrated that the National Industrial Recovery Act, with the exception of Section 7a, was framed by for, and in the interests of big business.
Mr. Flynn's last speech before a Harvard audience was two years ago. In regard to the address on Monday evening, Victor H. Kramer '35, president of the Liberal Club, issued the following statement: "Mr. Flynn, from the point of view of technique in speaking, is probably one of the most magnetic and compelling of the speakers whom the Liberal Club has presented to Harvard audiences in the past. In addition, his factual knowledge of the American business scene is probably exceeded by no present day journalist."
