John Lawson Stoddard (1850-1931) was an American writer, hymn
writer and lecturer who gained popularity through his travelogues.
He began travelling around the world in 1874, and published
Red-Letter Days Abroad in 1884. He turned his experiences into a
series of popular lectures delivered throughout North America.
These lectures were periodically published in book form as John L.
Stoddard's Lectures and eventually numbered ten volumes and five
supplements (1897-1898). The books include numerous illustrations
derived from the immense catalog of photographs taken by Stoddard,
and cover every subject, from art and architecture, to archeaology
and natural history. The books were immensely popular in their day
and many copies still survive. Later in life, Stoddard also
published poetry, as well as books on religious subjects.
