An advertisement in the Weekly Journal-Miner newspaper for the 1917 Prescott Chautauqua Week.

In 1917 Chautauqua Week was held May 13-17 at The Elks Opera House. Programming focused on loyalty to the United States and patriotism amidst America's entry into the First World War. The first night’s keynote speaker was Temperance pioneer Lou Beauchamp, who gave his famous lecture, “Take the Sunny Side.” The children’s programing expanded under the guidance of Miss Margaret Hotchkiss. She encouraged the local youth to participate in the Children’s Chautauqua Circus and to attend the performances of Little Women and Pinafore.
