Notes
Victor ledgers: "Personal records for General Motor Co." It is not known if the talk is intended for General Motor Parade employees or part of a public exhibit.
The General Motors Parade of Progress was a themed road show about scientific research, engineering, and technological advances representing “American progress.” The presentations included a stage show in an Aerodome tent and animated exhibits in several purpose-built vehicles called “Futureliners” that could be opened out to operate marquees, stage platforms, lighting towers, and public address systems. The original Parade toured in 1936; the second tour started at the 1939 New York World’s Fair and toured across the United States, making stops in small towns and rural areas.
Ledgers indicate that the master recording was "personal"; it was made on commission or not intended for release.
