Wyatt Scrapbook - Program from an Entertainment

In November 2011, I purchased a scrapbook at an antiques mall in Carson, California. The scrapbook is believed to have belonged to Laurine Wyatt. I am transcribing the articles and documents contained in the scrapbook with the hope that it may be of value to genealogists who may be researching the individuals named.

Laurine Wyatt likely saved the following program because the messages were meaningful to her and were delivered by influential men of the day. There is no indication in the scrapbook when or where the program was held.
