Redpath and Wealth

(p.177) Chapter Eight Redpath and Wealth
Thomas Nast

This chapter focuses on James Redpath and his role in Thomas Nast's career. When Thomas Nast traveled to London and Cornwall, he visited old friends whom he had not seen since his visit to Europe in 1860. The most significant outcome of the trip related to Nast's encounter with James Redpath. Redpath owned the Boston Lyceum Bureau, an agency that supplied speakers and entertainers to lyceums around the country, and he wanted to represent Nast. His repeated requests were met with rebuttals by Nast, but after resorting to trickery, Redpath was able to get him to commit to giving one hundred lectures.

Keywords:   James Redpath, Thomas Nast, London, Cornwall, Boston Lyceum Bureau, lyceums
