Vital Speeches of the Day

"Vital Speeches of the Day is a monthly collection of the best speeches in the world. It’s also a lot more than that."

"The magazine was launched in 1934 on the old-fashioned premise that 'it is indeed vital to the welfare of the nation that important, constructive addresses by recognized leaders in both the public and private sectors be permanently recorded and disseminated—both to ensure that readers gain a sound knowledge of public questions and to provide models of excellence in contemporary oratory.'” [Publisher's statement]

Online full-text access of this important periodical is available from 1934 to present.
