Author’s Biography

Elias Burton Holmes was born in January, 1870, in Chicago. In 1883 he became interested in photography, devoting much time to picture-making in the course of his earlier travels in the United States, Cuba, and Mexico. In 1886 he made his first European tour. In 1890 a second and longer tour of England and the Continent gave him the material for his first lecture, “Through Europe with a Camera,” which he presented, as an amateur, before the members of the Chicago Camera Club. In 1893 he made his first professional appearance, presenting “Japan—The Country,” and “Japan—The Cities,” at the Recital Hall of the Auditorium, Chicago, then introducing illustrations all in color for the first time in connection with travel lectures.

During the five following years the Burton Holmes lectures won increasing recognition in the cities of the Middle West. In 1897-98 Mr. Holmes established courses in the larger Eastern cities, then introducing Motion Pictures for the first time. In 1904 he appeared in England, lecturing on American scenic subjects at Queen’s Hall, in London. He is credited for coining the word “Travelogues” to describe his entertainments. He appeared annually in New York, Brooklyn, Boston, Philadelphia, Washington, Pittsburgh, Chicago, Milwaukee, Saint Louis, and San Francisco, giving from ten to twenty performances in each city, presenting five new subjects every season.

Paris, Peking, Dehli, Dubrovnik, Moscow, Manila, Jakarta, Jerusalem: Burton Holmes was there. He visited every continent and nearly every country on the planet, shooting over 30,000 photographs and nearly 500,000 feet of film.
