Within this chapter I learned about the history of Public Realtions. I found it interesting that the first Public Relations firm was opened by Ivy Ledbetter Lee in 1905. Throughout the chapter it also gives details about each of the Pioneers that contributed to the history of Public Relations. Public Realtions produced rapid growth after World War II, this was due to the growth of the economy and it’s major changes. In the begining of the Public Relations pratice, it was male-dominate. Now females take over the field and fill many of the PR jobs. It has now leveled out that woman fill about 70% of the jobs in the field.
All of the information came from the textbook Public Relations Strategies and Tactics written by Wilcox and Glenn.
