LITERATURE DOCUMENTING THE HISTORY OF CHALK TALK


This archive collection is an ongoing project documenting the rich history of chalk talk. The name "Golden Chalk Classics" reflects the fact that most of these books were first published well over 50 years ago - some closer to a century. Many are in the public domain and, currently, there are 16 titles posted for FREE download - dozens more will be added as they are scanned. Other books in this archive may be out of print but are still protected by copyright. In those cases I am seeking permission from publishers & owners to post their titles here. Gratefully, some have graciously allowed their work to be downloaded here for non-commercial use.

If you prefer to own second hand copies of the vintage books you discover here, most of them may be found online at sites such as AbeBooks.com, FindBookPrices.com, Biblio.com, BookFinder.com, BookFinder4U.com and eBay.

Finally, special thanks to Elva Hurst for inspiring this project.

HOW IT ALL BEGAN...


CHALK TALK WAS BORN IN THE CHURCH

It may have jumped quickly from the sanctuary to vaudeville, to the Chautauqua Circuit and beyond, but Chalk Talk's roots can be traced to the Methodist church - and a singular individual - Mr. Frank Beard (1842-1905). Here are his reflections on how it happened (excerpted from an interview in 1895):

"There is no man in the United States who can give forth ideas in this manner as he can. He is, you know, the originator of the chalk talk, and there is hardly a town in the United States in which he has not given this sort of a lecture, standing on the platform with a roll of paper stretched on an easel before him, and with a half-dozen colored crayons in his hand. He carries his audiences [away] with him while he draws pictures illustrating the philosophy, fun and satire which he throws at them in solid chunks. There are today a score or more of this kind of entertainers in the United States. Frank Beard, however, was the author of the business, and he made today a sketch for me in illustration of his story as to how he came to make the first chalk talk. Said he:

'It is now more than twenty years since I gave my first talk of this kind. I was a young artist in New York, and had just gotten married. My wife was an enthusiastic churchgoer and a great deal of our courtship was carried on in going to and from the
Methodist church. The result was that I struck a revival and became converted. This occurred shortly after I was married, and like other enthusiastic young Christians, I wanted to do all I could for the church. I was on hand at all the meetings, and I took part in all the church work.

Now, our church, like many others in the United States, was very hard up. We were always needing money for something, and we tried to supply this by means of entertainments and socials. Soon after I joined [the church] the young people gave an exhibition, and the ladies suggested that I draw some pictures as a part of it. I consented, but I felt that the standing-up before an audience and sketching without saying anything in illustration of the pictures would be a very silly thing. So I concluded to make a short talk and draw the sketches in illustration of it.

I wrote out my story and rehearsed it half a dozen times beforehand. The entertainment was for a Thanksgiving celebration, and my rehearsal took place at home. My wife, my mother-in-law and the turkey, which we tied up in a chair, forming the audience. Well, my wife survived, my mother-in-law did not die while I was talking, and the turkey was not spoiled.

The exhibition came off in the church, and it was a great success. Other churches heard of it, and I had applications to repeat it again and again. At first I was flattered, and I readily consented. I never thought of charging for it until the demands became so numerous that I was unable to fill them. It was taking much of my energy and lots of time. To put a stop to it my wife suggested that I charge so much for each entertainment. So, when the next application came, I replied that I could oblige them, but that it would cost $30. To my surprise they accepted my offer by return mail. It was so with nearly everyone who wrote, and I soon found that I was making more at my chalk talks than at my newspaper work.'"

The full article from the Deseret News, Sep. 17, 1895, can be read HERE. A short bio of Frank Beard is posted at Christian Comics International. See "Frank Beard: An American Sunday-School Artist" HERE. Frank wrote an article about chalk talk in 1883 for the St. Nicholas magazine found HERE. You may also see some of his books listed BELOW.

Here is a fascinating excerpt from Four Girls at Chautauqua (1876), Chapter 25 "Sermons in Chalk":
"Frank Beard was one of Chautauqua's favorites...[he] was so quaint, so original, so innocent in his originality, so pure and high toned, even in his fun, and they liked him so much that every heart there responded to his mirth. The roars of laughter reached as high as the music had done...

They were such funny pictures!-just a few strokes of the magic crayon and the character...would seem to start into life before you, and you would feel that you could almost know what thoughts were passing in the hearts of the creature made of chalk...There was an instant of rapid motion, a few skillful lines, and it needed no word of explanation to recognize the great family Bible...and on one page of the open Bible there flashed an anchor.

How did Frank Beard do it with a dull colored crayon and a half-dozen movements of his skillful arm? How can I tell, except that God has given to the arm wondrous skill; but there appeared before that astonished multitude a foundation as of granite, and there rose from it...a cross!"

CHALK TALK IN THE SILENT MOVIES!


J. STUART BLACKTON

This British filmmaker created the first animated film in America. Before creating cartoons, Blackton was a vaudeville performer known as "The Komikal Kartoonist." In his act, he drew "lightning sketches" or chalk talks.

After meeting Thomas Edison in 1895, Blackton was inspired to put his drawings on film. His first creation was "The Enchanted Drawing" (1900). Using trick film techniques which he developed, the drawing magically comes alive!

To view this classic, click THE ENCHANTED DRAWING.
WINDSOR McCAY

Windsor McCay started performing "chalk talks" on vaudeville in 1906, as a sideline to his regular newspaper cartooning. Gertie the Dinosaur was originally created to be used in this vaudeville act.
A prolific artist, McCay pioneered early animated films and set a standard followed by Walt Disney and others in later decades. To view a portion of this 1914 classic, click HERE.

A SMALL HISTORICAL DETAIL


CHALK OR CRAYON?

Much of the writing connected with Chalk Talk uses the term "crayon" as freely as the word "chalk." So, what material was actually used? The vintage ad to the right (1920s) should clear up the confusion. It reads: "Lecture crayon is a soft crayon composition which comes to you in square sticks of various colors in brilliant contrasts, according to pressure applied in drawing them over the tightly stretched paper surface. Wonderful picture effects and fascinating comic presentations are quickly produced after a little practice with these PASTEL-LIKE [chalk, not wax] crayons."
The same advertisement lists GRAY BOGUS paper in the following sizes: 24x36, 30x44 and 36x48. Most modern chalk artists are working on formats much larger than our pioneers.

by Frank Beard, 1904, Uplift Publishing Co.: NY, 182pp. (also a 1908 ed. by Hertel, Jenkins Co.)


Contents: "Rebuses are picture puzzles. In this book, stories from both the Old and New Testaments are brought to life in a series of rebuses that make a superb introduction to the teachings of the Bible. Symbols associated with important Biblical passages are joined by illustrations of the most famous stories.

Beautifully ornamented pages illustrate God's creation of Earth; the flood, Noah's Ark, and the rainbow of promise; Joseph and his coat of many colors; David's battle against Goliath; Daniel in the lions' den; and the birth of Jesus. Also presented in this unique format are the best-loved proverbs, parables, and psalms.

Both children and adults will enjoy puzzling over the meanings of the symbols and artwork that provide stimulation for continued study of the Scriptures. There are also quizzes that families will enjoy answering together.

This striking visual presentation of Old and New Testament stories makes THE BIBLE THROUGH PICTURES a unique volume for the family bookshelf." (from the 2000 edition)

BIXLER, WILLIAM ALLEN (1876-1961)


CHALK TALK MADE EASY: Crayon and Blackboard Drawing Simplified.
by William Allen Bixler, 1932, Warner Press: Anderson, IN, 129pp.

“The main secret in chalk talk lies in the fact that the audience sees the picture grow by every line, their curiosity is aroused and they are constantly held in expectation till the final result. Many persons have held back from using the chalk and crayon because they have not known that the principles are within their grasp…Any person who desires to develop his ability as a chalk talker will find here the cream of principles necessary for such development.” (from the Introduction)


First cover is a 1932 edition. Second cover is a 1953 edition. Third cover is a 1958 edition.

BROWN, LOURIE OTTIS (1876- ?)


CHALK TALKS
by Lourie Ottis Brown, 1928, Ryerson: Toronto, 103pp. (shown with and without dust jacket) There is also an ed. by John C. Williams, 105pp.

A selection of fifty stories, and fifty simple drawings, all leading to religious interpretations, or lessons.
"This book comes as an answer to the growing need of illustrated talks along spiritual lines. Its aim is to enable any person to present gospel truths in an impressive and fascinating manner. One is not required to be an artist to use this material effectively. The amateur has been kept in mind constantly. Those who wish to illustrate religious truths with the crayon will find great pleasure in the chalk talk work." (from the Forward)

CRAYON TALKS
by Lourie Ottis Brown, 1941, F.H. Revell, 107pp. (shown with and without dust jacket)

"That the eye-gate has a far greater appeal than the ear-gate is a fact generally accepted - a picture having been said to be 'worth a thousand words.' One need not be an artist to take advantage of the eye-gate method here set forth, for the simplified drawings in this book make it possible for anyone to illustrate these talks before an audience with a few easily drawn strokes.

The public speaker, lecturer, teacher, missionary, evangelist, preacher and minister who presents facts in pictures pleasingly conveys truth through the most impressive, attractive and lasting method. The author in his years of experience has found the using of the crayon, while speaking to an audience a most entertaining and helpful way of attracting and holding the interest of both 'grown-uyps' and children."

It contains several heart touching illustrations and humorous gems from the mouths of babes. It also contains a list of seventy-five eye-catching object lessons. If you have a desire to reach kids for Christ, Bucky and Friends is the book you need. It is the author's desire that many will use this book as a tool to reach those precious little souls for Christ. John R. Dodd is pastor of the Sardinia Presbyterian Church (PCA) in Sardinia, South Carolina. He is the founder of Evangelistic-Art Ministries. As evangelist for E.A.M., he has held revivals in churches, camps, and conferences all along the eastern states from New York to Florida. He has held crusades in other countries. Rev.

DRAWING BIBLE STORIES WITH A SURPRISE FOR THE EYES
by Nathan Dorrell, 2001, The Dorrell Evangelistic Press, 74pp.

Contents: Nathan teaches you simple drawings to share Bible stories in an amazing way! Each story has one complete page for tracing...so you don't even have to be able to draw! AND, when the drawings are done...each one turns upside-down or sideways to become something totally different in order to share the message of the story! The word "water" becomes "wine" to share the story of Jesus' first miracle. The word "envy" turns into "love." The picture of Nicodemus' face turns upside down to become a woman with a new baby...to teach "You must be born again!" All 25 Bible stories have a real surprise for the eyes. Nathan has also added some extra drawings/messages at the end of the book to share other Biblical truths. We recommend this book to Sunday School teachers, Youth workers, VBS leaders, Ministers, Evangelists, Pastors, Christian Illusionists...and anyone who shares scripture and Bible stories! This book is a "must have" for church libraries as well!
