Oh, I didn't think of checking wikipedia! No titles mentioned there... but the "educator" fits the speech perfectly.
Cheers,
Ava.

It was, indeed.

Just looking this over a bit more.
Would it be appropriate to take another part, or do you want different voices?
I'd be glad to do Bell, or one of the other men. Let me know what you think.

Yes, definitely, Larry! I hope it's ok to say that you have a very suitable voice/reading for a memorial service

Our regular pool of readers for the NGM will not be enough to fill in all the names; you could either read for Dr Bell or for a couple of the other names (the only consecutive ones are sections 9 and 10, the rest are split by Dr Bell speaking).

That also goes for the rest of our readers, if you'd like to get another section, please do. It'll help get this finished sooner.

Since all the other parts are finished, you could move this project over to the Dramatic Works forum.

Maybe it helps in filling the roles. :wink:
Cheers,
Ava.

Well, thanks for the comment. Maybe it is because, as a minister, I have conducted quite a few memorial services.

So, in view of your above outline, let me go ahead and take Bell.
We should attract some of our good dramatic people.

Okay, here is A. Bell. I thought maybe this would be longer, so I hope I didn't leave something out.

There are a few more paragraphs that belong to Part 1 (section 2), so would go around 4:50 of your recording, but the rest of it is perfect! Thank you Larry!

The paragraphs missing are:
one from page 43, just before Langley https://archive.org/details/nationalgeograph91898nati/page/43/mode/1up
and then from second half of page 45 https://archive.org/details/nationalgeograph91898nati/page/45/mode/1up continuing for 3 long paragraphs up to Dr Yale on page 46.

Ah! That's more like it, but sorry I missed the additional parts.
Let's try this one:
