Eloquence of Frederick Jackson Turner
Ronald H. Carpenter (au). In reading history, people often form attitudes which affect their future actions. Historians thus have the opportunity to persuade & influence a wide audience. Frederick Jackson Turner was particularly persuasive, largely because of his eloquent style. This study of Turner’s rhetoric reveals the ways in which he influenced a broad spectrum of Americans & the means by which he did so. Letters to Turner, to his family, & other primary source material are analyzed & his oratorical career is also described in detail from his high school experiences to his univ. activities. The influence of Robert M. La Follette is treated in some detail. Examples of Turner’s oratory includes: “The Power of the Press.”
