Yesterday, on Edelman's 60th anniversary, Richard Edelman addressed nearly 200 people at the University Club in Chicago. In his speech, which can be viewed in its entirety below, he paid tribute to his father and founder and current chairman of Edelman, Dan Edelman, and the city of Chicago, the firm's birthplace.

In attendance along with his mother Ruth, brother John and sister Renee, were past and present Edelman employees, clients, local dignitaries and marketing executives and journalists.

"Chicago is Edelman's home," said Edelman in his speech. "It's where we started. It's our co-headquarters. The Chicago culture of creativity and client service is deeply engrained in the soul of this firm. And so today, as we celebrate our 60th year, there's no place more fitting to recognize this milestone.

When I look back at my father's career, it strikes me that it was only in Chicago that such a story could have unfolded. Were it not for the unique aspects of Chicago, we wouldn't be the business we are today...

As Dan saw from an office in the Merchandise Mart 60 years ago...as we see with even greater clarity today... PR, at its best, can help move business and society forward in a complex world."
