Dr Hill, I Presume?

This collage contains an old Rolodex-style index card that identifes Dr. John Wesley Hill as a "prominent peace speaker" from New York. Isn't that mysterious? Who typed up that card? For what purpose? It makes me wonder what flotsam and jetsam from my life might end up in someone's artwork years from now.
I did some cybersleuthing on "the google" and determined that in 1915 Dr. Hill was president of the International Peace Forum. Its purpose was "to promote industrial and international peace by encouraging a systematic study of the causes of strikes, lock-outs and war, and the best methods of bringing about conciliation." Works for me...
