1955 Original STANFORD UNIVERSITY PHD THESIS Conceptual Trends in VOICE and DICTION TRAINING in American Colleges and Universityies
Original STANFORD PHD THESIS titled CONCEPTUAL TRENDS in VOICE and DICTION TRAINING in AMERICAN COLLEGES and UNIVERSITIES. By Ward Thorvel Rasmus.
"A Dissertation Submitted to the Department of Speech and Drama and the Committee on Graduate Study of Stanford University in Partial Fulfillment of the Requirements for the Degree of Doctor of Philosophy." Dated April 1955.
Hardcovers, burgundy cloth covered boards, gilt titling on the spine, 8.5x11 inches, carbon copy typescript pages (the type can be felt on the backsides), 254 pages plus some introductory pages.
Original HAND SIGNATURES of three members of the Stanford University Committee on Graduate Study. They approved the thesis as fully adequate for the PhD degree.
VERY GOOD condition, the spine gilt titling has mostly faded but is still legible, the covers have shelf rubs but are otherwise solid and doing their job well; the last two pages have creasing at the upper corner area, otherwise the pages are tight, bright, clean, clear and unmarked. A solid, very nice copy.
From the last page: "This dissertation was typed by Miss Louise Kent Hale, 2329 Princeton Street, Palo Alto, California." Now there's a job that no longer exists!
