An attempt has been made to show in a suggestive manner how successful commercial publicity methods may be extended to non-commercial institutions for the benefit of society in general. The book is written for amateurs by one who would hesitate to call himself a professional. The writer, however, for a dozen years earned his living by working for newspapers as editor or reporter in towns of 2,000, 10,000, 30,000, and 100,000 population. He has managed publicity for the Minnesota State Board of Health, and for the St. Paul Association of Commerce, and has been a contributor to advertising magazines. Connection with church organizations, Sunday school associations, city Christian Endeavor unions, Y. M. C. A.s, and experience for two years as news editor of The Continent (Chicago) have given him some insight into publicity problems from the side of pastors and executives of non-commercial organizations. Most of the suggested plans have been tried.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
