An Analysis and Evaluation of Selected Public Speeches of John James Ingalls, by Ray Harold Sandefur
This Ph.D. thesis for the State University of Iowa by Ray Harold Sandefur is an "attempt to make a rhetorical analysis of Ingalls' speaking techniques in some fifteen senatorial speeches and two Kansas speeches." Sandefur's main concern was primarily with the materials and methods by means of which Ingalls on the platform was able to gain belief and move to action. Rhetorical, historical, and evaluative methodology was employed.
