American Baptist minister and lawyer, Russell Conwell was the founder and first President of Temple University who is best remembered for his speech, "Acres of Diamonds", in which he puts forth the idea that one need not look elsewhere for opportunity, but rather all the resources for achieving success exist in one's own back yard. That inspiring speech can be found in this little volume along with a short biography of Conwell by Robert Shackleton and an autobiographical essay on his life as an orator by Conwell himself.
