National Press Club Luncheon Speakers Collection

The National Press Club, another rich resource, began privately recording its luncheon speakers series in 1952. The National Press Club Luncheon Speakers Collection contains a wide ranging series of informal talks followed by question-and-answer sessions. The club's guest list has been a veritable Who's Who of newsworthy women from roughly the past fifty years, including Bella Abzug (1920-1998) (LWO 8217 513), Shirley Chisholm (b. 1924) (RXA 1406), Elizabeth Dole (b. 1936) (RXA 6260), Coretta Scott King (b. 1927) (RYC 46, RSS 13039), and Gloria Steinem (b. 1934) (RXA 1506-1508, RXA 6274). This collection is cataloged in SONIC, where it is searchable by name of guest, date, and sometimes subject.
