1928-- PR Pioneer Ivy Lee publishes an account of his ten-day trip to Russia in "Present-Day Russia." Now, 90 years later, Lee's observations are finally available in Russian, thanks to Prof. Asya Veksler, from the School of Integrated Communications at the National Research University Higher School of Economics in Moscow. Ray Hiebert, Lee's biographer, ("Courtier to the Crowd") wrote the Foreword to the new edition. (Sheila Gibbons Hiebert) To read Lee's book in its original, see.

Thanks to Prof. Ron Culp for publishing this tribute, about a man who needs to be recognized by the industry and remembered for all he accomplished. Read it here.
