But to get a sense of Opa's experience of him, we were blessed to receive digital copies of "The Spectator" which was the school newspaper from McPherson during Opa's time in school. So below are the Spectator articles leading up to Page's talk and the one after as well (based on the amount of articles, you could tell the school was excited to welcome him). Enjoy!!
These first two are somewhat identical and ran on April 18 and 25, 1941:
Invitations have been sent by the local S.C.M. to other colleges in Kansas, to attend Mr. Page's lectures and students from Kansas Wesleyan University, Bethel College, and Sterling College will be in McPherson to hear him tonight.
Author of nineteen volumes and sixteen pamphlets on international and social questions, Mr. Page has spoken at 300 colleges and universities. Tonight Mr. Page will speak on the subject "How Can We Defend American Democracy?"
In addition to his experience as student and speaker, Mr. Page has crossed the ocean 20 times and has visited some 30 countries of the world, has interviewed such men as Mahatma Ghandi, Kagawa, G.B. Shaw, and Chiang Kai-shek, and has been received by the King of Iraq. On his various trips, he has interviewed at different times the late President von Hindenburg, Lloyd George, H.G. Wells, the late Ramsay MacDonald, the late Sun Yat Sen, and many other prominent people.
There is no admission charge to the lecture and a free-will offering will be received.
This last one is from May 9, 1941, after Page's visit the week before:
