Fifty Years of International Debate 1922-1972.
Hall, Robert N.; Rhodes, Jack L.
Since 1922, interrupted only by World War II, American college debators have exchanged visits and demonstration tours with their foreign counterparts, primarily from Great Britain but gradually expanded to include other areas of the world. This report, prepared by the Committee on International Discussion and Debate of the Speech Communication Association, begins with a historical review of the highlights of international debating experiences. There is a brief discussion of future plans for the program growth as well as a report of the first international debating exchange between Oxford University and Bates College. There are also participant rosters of American and foreign students and institutions represented. The booklet closes with a report on the first American tour by students from the Soviet Union in April 1972.(RN)
