Impression of the English Bar and Solicitors to the Canadian and American Bar Associations August-September, 1930, gained by a member of the the Delegation
BEECROFT, W. G. [Walter Gordon]
The visitors are entertained by Prime Minister R. B. Bennett and President Herbert Hoover themselves. Beecroft, British lawyer, art collector, and Stuffed Shirt, is unattracted by Canada - "no antiquity, no art, no music, no empirical culture" - but about America he writes "The Architecture, the Art Treasures, the Picture Galleries, the wonderful Hotels and the equally wonderful railway service. Most attractive of all, perhaps, the people ..." (p. 1). As Mr. B. does not like us, we don't like him, but the details of his tour are of interest.
