Tours for W Colston Leigh Lecture Bureau, 1930-1950
Shortly after William Colston Leigh established his Lecture Bureau in 1929 he was introduced to Bruce Bairnsfather - about whom he knew very little - and had soon persuaded the cartoonist to join the speakers under his management. Bairnsfather was much in demand and extremely popular on the lecture circuit, and with the exception of one season with Harold R Peat's agency in 1935-36, he remained on Leigh's books as a speaker until 1950.
The Leigh Bureau is still in business today, and remains one of the world's leading speakers agencies.
