Title

Elocution Lessons By Mail

Description

Enclosed in all of the medal contest reciters were advertisements for correspondence courses in elocution taught by women from small towns in Illinois. “Elocution lessons by mail” required a student to send her selection to the instructor, who would provide written guidance concerning vocal expression and gesture – yet another example of the ways in which writing technologies were used to direct live performance.
