LAURANT AND COMPANY
For more than seventeen years th<
Great Laurant has been a Chautauqui
and Lyceum headliner. For more that
ten years he has apepared under Red
path management-a fact whicl
speaks for itself. During the yearf
which he has devoted to the Lyceun
platform, many offers from vaudevilli
and theatrical managers have beer
turned aside by Mr. Laurant because
he believed in the Lyceum as a great
er field in which to present his work
In fact, as a charter member of the
International Lyceum Association, he
has had no small part in the develop.
ment of this organization and the
Lyceum movement as a whole.
The high esteem in which he is hekd
by the members of his own professior
is evidenced in the fact that he was
given a gold medal by the Society 01
American Magicians. He has also ap.
peared on several occasions before so
cities of scientific research.
Ithas always been Mr. Laurant's
aim to have the most artistic magic
entertainment before the public. He
has never been content to let wel
enough alone or to rest upon his
laurels. Each season he has endeavor.
ed to make his entertainment bettei
than the last.
