The Speeches and Broadcasts of Revilo P. Oliver (and other selected speakers)



Dr.Oliver during the filming of After 50 YearsDURING THE 1950s and 1960s, Dr. Revilo Pendleton Oliver attended and spoke before numerous patriotic gatherings, including those of the John Birch Society, the Congress of Freedom, the Steuben Society, the Freedom Forum, the Citizens Council, and the Daughters of the American Revolution, among others. He also made several radio broadcasts and one film (After 50 Years, National Youth Alliance, 1969; available on VHS tape from National Vanguard Books).

It is my goal to provide as many of these speeches as possible here. Here they are presented in compressed mp3 format. (Coming soon -- CD recordings of every speech. Watch this space.)

The files here can be downloaded to your hard drive for later playback or played almost instantly using streaming mp3 technology. You will need a streaming-compatible mp3 player such as Winamp to use the latter feature.

If you have time for only one speech, I recommend What We Owe Our Parasites (in the audio index below, also available in text form) as his best and most comprehensive work.

These speeches are listed in chronological order, and you will note an increasing frankness on racial matters in the later work.

Immediately below you will see a collection of photographs taken during several of Dr. Oliver's speaking engagements. Following them you will find the index of his speeches and a short selection of other worthwhile speeches. -- Kevin Alfred Strom.
