The Bohemian Grove is one of the more
important places in the United States where businessmen, politicians, army
officers, and scientists can sit around with each other and talk about anything
they're interested in. Although networking is officially not allowed, some
business deals can always be made behind a couple of trees. The quote "makes it
easier to pick up the phone" has been mentioned more than once. Politics can be
discussed openly and whether a particular candidate is liked by the Bohemians or
not can make or break his career. About 85% of the Bohemian Grove members are
1970s or 1980s,
dinner in the forest.
If you are interested in my thoughts on
the symbolism surrounding the Cremation of Care and the Bohemian Grove you can
take a look here.
Nothing of that is discussed in this article.
On this page you can find a short
historical timeline of the Bohemian Grove, a list of some of the relatively
recent visitors of camp Mandalay, an analysis of the British visitors, and the
layout and location of the Bohemian Grove itself. The membership list included
with this article consists of 564 names, all of them with biographies, some more
extensive than others. There's a separate list of the 104 camps that are located
within the Bohemian Grove. At the bottom of this article you'll find many cached
All these are topics I generally missed in
all the other articles about the Bohemian Grove, so I guess most of you will
find this a useful expansion.
Timeline of the Bohemian Club and
the Bohemian Grove.
||The Bohemian Club is organized in San Francisco as
a gathering place for men who like the arts and literature. The clubhouse is
located in the Astor Hotel on Sacramento Street and the owl is chosen as the
||The Club has 182 members.
||The Bohemian Club's motto, "Weaving spiders, come
not here", first appears on a Club announcement. It was taken from
Shakespeare's "A midsummer Night's Dream".
||The Club has outgrown the Astor Hotel and moves to
430 Pine Street in San Francisco.
||In 1878, several dozen Bohemians hold a Jinks in
the forest in Sonoma County near what is now known as Camp Taylor
(California Historical Society, Bohemian Club 1947). This was the start of a
long Bohemian tradition of trekking to the Sonoma County redwoods during
July and August of each year for camping and self entertainment.
||The Club's patron saint becomes John of Nepomuk.
The legend says that St. John was killed in 1393 at the orders of Wenceslaus
IV, King of the Bohemians & King of the Holy Roman Empire, because he didn't
want to disclose the confessional secrets of Queen Johanna of Bohemia.
Today, St. John symbolizes the right to privacy of the Bohemians. An
interesting, but seemingly unconnected detail is that Wenceslaus IV
struggled with his half-brother Sigismund I (same father) for the title of
Holy Roman Emperor. King Sigismund was the one who reinstituted the ancient
Dragon Court, which still exists today. The British Queen and the Lord Mayor
of London are involved with it.
||The extremely successful Joseph D. Redding is
elected president of the Bohemian Club and in 8 years he will devise [his
version of?] the Cremation of Care. Redding is a very successful attorney
for the Southern Pacific Railroad Company, which is owned by the
Rockefeller-connected Pilgrims Society families of Harriman & Harkness.
Redding is considered a musical genius. [Reference 2 on this page; more
details in the article on the BG symbolism and in the membership list]
||The Club has 561 members, which are a combination
of literary figures and San Francisco businessmen. Among them are 4 members
of the Crocker banking family, 3 Spreckles, William Randolph Hearst, Bay
Area shipbuilder Arthur W. Moore, columnist and writer Ambrose Bierce,
writer Henry George, and 14 officers from the Army and Navy. Other Bohemian
Club writers are Charles K. Field, Ina Coolbrith, Bret Harte, Daniel
O'Connell, and Mark Twain.
||The 70 ft. high Buddha statue is built within the
Sequoia Valley, now known as the Bohemian Grove. It is modeled after the
Daibutsu of Kamakura, the Great Buddha from Japan. The statue used to be
part of the Cremation of Care.
||Joseph D. Redding creates the Cremation of Care
and serves as High Priest of Bohemia during this ceremony. Within a couple
of years he will move his business to New York where he again becomes part
of 'high society'. The Bohemian Club starts renting a piece of land in the
Sequoia Valley from the Sonoma Lumber Company. They will do this until 1899
when they make their first land purchase.
||The Bohemian Club buys a 160 acre piece of land in
the Sequoia Valley, today known as the Bohemian Grove. The Club will make
twenty-eight purchases of land over a 67 year period. Today it owns 2,712
acres. The New York Times writes two articles about the Cremation of Care
and how impressive it is.
||The Washington Post reads: "The Taft party
to-day visited the Bohemian grove of redwoods...", which is the first
reference I have seen to presidents visiting the Bohemian Grove.
||The Cremation of Care ceremony is moved to the
first weekend of the encampment.
||The Bohemian Club has 1259 members, of which 787
resident members, 241 non-resident members, 19 Navy officers, 49 Army
officers, 29 faculty members, 114 associate members, and 20 honorary
||The Lake is built. It is about 100 feet wide and
400 feet long. Or for everybody outside of the United States: 30 meters wide
and 124 meters long.
||The concrete owl is built and there are 169 camps
in the Bohemian Grove.
||The Club takes up residence at the Sir Francis
Drake Hotel when the dismantling of the old clubhouse begins. The club has
grown to about 2000 members. A large new Club House is opened the following
||Membership drops to 1643 due to World War II.
||The Lake is relined with earth and concrete. It
has an artificial waterfall tumbling into it, and water lilies are kept in
natural-looking patterns by water jets embedded in the lake bottom. The only
natural aspect to the lake is the early morning mist rising off of it every
||There are 124 camps in the Bohemian Grove.
Members of camp Mandalay
|Many camps in the Bohemian Grove
contain very prestigious visitors. You have camps like
July 23, 1950, Eisenhower,
Hoover, Edward Teller, And Ernest Lawrence.
||Cave Man, Hideaway, Hill Billies, Hillside, Isle
of Aves, Lost Angels, Mandalay, Midway, Owl's Nest, Sempervirens, Silverado
Squatters, and Stowaway. Mandalay seems to be the camp for international
relations and consists of many members officially or otherwise connected to
the intelligence agencies. Mandalay is the only camp you cannot just walk
into and before you are allowed on the compound someone will ask you who you
have an appointment with. If you're cleared for access, you are taken up the
|a Bechtel-designed electric pulley.
Many members of camps like Hill Billies or Stowaway (Rockefellers and
Morgans) have been to Mandalay at one time or another.

connected to the British Crown and the major banks in the City of London. If

1929). One of his brothers, Lord Robert Brand, was a major player in
Milner's Round Table. One of Robert's many positions was as a financial
adviser to Lord Robert Cecil, chairman of the Supreme Economic Council of
the Versailles Peace Talks (1919). Robert Cecil was a member of what
probably is the most powerful dynastic family behind the British throne
since the 1500s. The father of Robert Cecil was also a primary founder and
coordinator of both the initial Rhodes secret society and the later Round
Table. Other family members of Sir Hubert Brand also played a large role in
the British empire.

|Bechtel, Stephen D., Sr.
||His father died under strange circumstances in
Moscow. The Bechtel Company is a privately owned (giant) construction
firm operating worldwide and headquartered in San Francisco and is a
mainstay of the nuclear industry. Bechtel designed the military space
shuttle facility at Vandenburg Air Force Base. It is known for decades
for its many boondoggles all over the world. Bechtel had been rescued in
its time of need by J. Henry Schroder and Avery Rockefeller. On June 3,
1954, the New York Times announced that Stephen Bechtel, chmn of Bechtel
Corp. had become partner of J.P. Morgan Co. In 1955, Fortune reported
that as Under Secretary of State, C. Douglas Dillon had arranged
important contracts for Bechtel with the Saudi Arabian government,
culminating in the present $135 billion Jubail operation. In January,
1975, Fortune pointed out that Bechtel had never been in the red for a
single year, because "Its engineering projects are invariably financed
by its clients." These clients are usually governments, a lesson which
may have been learned from the Rothschilds. Bechtel funds the Heritage
Foundation, which made large contributions to the neocon agenda since
the 1980's. Heritage is headed by Le Cercle member Edwin J. Feulner, who
is another member of the Bohemian Grove. Bechtel is a leading player in

|Bierce, Ambrose G.
||American satirist, and critic, short story
writer, editor and journalist. Born in Ohio in 1842. Military career
from 1860 to 1866 and moved to San Francisco. He remained there for many
years, eventually becoming famous as a contributor and/or editor for a
number of local newspapers and periodicals, including The San Francisco
News Letter, The Argonaut, and The Wasp. Bierce lived and wrote in
England from 1872 to 1875. Returning to the United States, he again took
up residence in San Francisco. In 1887, he became one of the first
regular columnists and editorialists to be employed on William Randolph
Hearst's newspaper, the San Francisco Examiner, eventually becoming one
of the most prominent and influential among the writers and journalists
of the West Coast. In December 1899, he moved to Washington, DC, but
continued his association with the Hearst newspapers until 1906. Because
of his penchant for biting social criticism and satire, Bierce's long
newspaper career was often steeped in controversy. On several occasions
his columns stirred up a storm of hostile reaction which created
difficulties for Hearst. One of the most notable of these incidents
occurred following the assassination of President William McKinley when
Hearst's political opponents turned a satirical poem Bierce had written
in 1900 into a cause célèbre. Bierce meant his poem, written on the
occasion of the assassination of Governor-elect William Goebel of
Kentucky, to express a national mood of dismay and fear, but after
McKinley was shot in 1901 it seemed to foreshadow the crime:
The bullet that pierced Goebel's breast
Can not be found in all the West;
Good reason, it is speeding here
To stretch McKinley on his bier.
Hearst was accused by rival newspapers — and by
then Secretary of State Elihu Root (Pilgrims Society; co-founder
Carnegie Endowment and its first president; main founder CFR) — of
having called for McKinley's assassination. Despite a national uproar
that ended his ambitions for the presidency (and even his membership in
the Bohemian Club), Hearst neither revealed Bierce as the author of the
poem, nor fired him.
His short stories are considered among the best
of the 19th century. In October 1913, the septuagenarian Bierce departed
Washington on a tour to revisit his old Civil War battlefields. By
December, he had proceeded on through Louisiana and Texas, crossing by
way of El Paso into Mexico, which was then in the throes of revolution.
In Ciudad Juárez, he joined the army of Pancho Villa as an observer, in
which role he participated in the battle of Tierra Blanca. He is known
to have accompanied Villa's army as far as the city of Chihuahua,
Chihuahua. After a last letter to a close friend, sent from that city on
December 26, 1913, he vanished without a trace, becoming one of the most
famous disappearances in American literary history. Subsequent
investigations to ascertain his fate were fruitless and, despite many
decades of speculation, his disappearance remains a mystery.

||Butler earned an A.B (1882), M.A. (1883) and
Ph.D. (1884), all in philosophy, at Columbia, specializing in the
writings of the German philosopher Immanuel Kant. He studied for a year
at the universities of Berlin and Paris. Became a staff member of the
Department of Philosophy at Columbia College, later known as Columbia
University. In 1882, Nicholas Murray Butler was appointed by Columbia
president Henry Barnard to offer Saturday lectures for teachers. The
turnout was enormous. Member New Jersey Board of Education from 1887 to
1895. Delegate to the Republican Convention 1888-1936. In 1891 Butler
founded the Educational Review, a journal of educational philosophies
and developments. He served as its editor until 1921. Organized the New
York College for the Training of Teachers in 1892, affiliated with
Columbia. Chairman the Paterson school 1892-1893. In these roles he led
efforts to remove state political interference from local New Jersey
school systems. In New York City, he did the same, spurring the creation
of a citywide school board that emphasized professionalism and policy
over political spoils (1895–1897). When New York City's consolidation
was complete, New York State sought a similar reform with Butler's
advice, completed in 1904. Participated in the formation of the College
Entrance Examination Board in 1900. Had become a close friend of
Pilgrims Society member Elihu Root by this time. President of Columbia
University 1901-1945. Professor Carroll Quigley wrote in 'Tragedy and
Hope': "J.P. Morgan and his associates were the most significant
figures in policy making at Harvard, Columbia and Yale while the
Whitneys and Prudential Insurance Company dominated Princeton. The chief
officials of these universities were beholden to these financial powers
and usually owed their jobs to them... Morgan himself helped make
Nicholas Murray Butler president of Columbia." Robert A. McCaughey
wrote in 'Stand Columbia: A History of Columbia University in the City
of New York, 1754–2004': "A compulsive name-dropper given to
self-puffery, Butler was nevertheless an effective administrator [of
Columbia], and J.P. Morgan, Andrew Carnegie, and E. H. Harriman sought
to hire him to run their enterprises." Butler held the presidency
in some of their railroad companies. President of the Germanistic
Society of Columbia University in 1905-1906 and a director from
1908-1917. It organized and sponsored lecture series for German scholars
in the United States. Travelled to Europe on occasion where he met with
Kaiser Wilhelm and Mussolini in his early fascist days. Quote from the
1973 book 'The Glory and the Dream, a Narrative History of America,
1932-1972', by William Manchester, pages 67-68: "Nicholas Murray
Butler told his students that totalitarian regimes brought forth "men of
far greater intelligence, far stronger character, and far more courage
than the system of elections," and if anyone represented the American
establishment then it was Dr. Butler, with his 34 honorary degrees, and
his thirty year tenure as president of Columbia University."
(quoted by Charles Savoie) Supposedly Butler agreed with some of the
Nazi racial theories about the superiority of the Teuton race. Another
quote attributed to him is: "The history of American education and
of our American contributions to philosophical thought cannot be
understood or estimated with[out] knowing of the life work of Dr.
William Torrey Harris." Harris, a supporter of Emmanuel Kant and
Georg Hegel, shaped modern American education to a large degree. He also
was highly influential in popularizing Hegel's philosophies in the
second half of the 19th century. Established a friendship with Governor
Theodore Roosevelt in the early 20th century. President University
Settlement Society 1905-1914. Became a trustee of the Carnegie
Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching in 1905. President American
Academy in Rome 1905-1940s. President of the American branch of
International Conciliation, an organization founded in 1905 by a Nobel
peace laureate, Baron d'Estournelles de Constant (from an "old
aristocratic family which traced its genealogy back to the Crusades",
whatever that means). Chairman of the Lake Mohonk Conferences on
International Arbitration, which met periodically from 1907 to 1912.
President American Scandinavian Society 1908-1911. Influential in
persuading Andrew Carnegie (a Pilgrims member, Hegelian, and Social
Darwinist) to establish the Endowment in 1910 with a gift of $10,000,000
he served as head of the Endowment's section on international education
and communication, founded the European branch of the Endowment, with
headquarters in Paris, and held the presidency of the parent Endowment
from 1925 to 1945. In 1912, Roosevelt ran for the presidency as the
candidate of the Progressive Party, which drew most of its strength from
Republicans, against the nominees of the constituted party: Taft for the
presidency and Butler for the vice-presidency. By splitting the national
vote, they permitted the Democrat, Woodrow Wilson, to win the election.
President France-America Society 1914-1924. Nicholas Murray Butler, in
an address delivered before the Union League of Philadelphia, Nov. 27,
1915: "The peace conference has assembled. It will make the most
momentous decisions in history, and upon these decisions will rest the
stability of the new world order and the future peace of the world."
Both Nicholas Murray Butler and Elihu Root were staunch supporters of
the League of Nations that would emerge after WWI. In 1916 Butler failed
in his attempt to secure the Republican presidential nomination for
Root. President American Hellenic Society 1917-1940s. William Bostock
paper (University of Tasmania), 'To the limits of acceptability:
political control of higher education' (2002): "On October 8, 1917,
the famous historian Charles A. Beard resigned from Columbia University
in protest over the dismissal of two colleagues, Professors Cattell and
Dana, for having publicly opposed the entry of the United States into
World War I. Cattell and Dana urged opposition to the draft, incurring
the censure of Columbia President Nicholas Murray Butler and the
Columbia Board of Trustees. There had also been a history of conflict
over academic leadership and governance between Butler and Cattell, a
distinguished psychologist." Michael Parenti, 'Against Empire'
(1995), chapter 10: "A leading historian, Charles Beard, was grilled
by the Columbia University trustees, who were concerned that his views
might "inculcate disrespect for American institutions." In disgust Beard
resigned from Columbia, declaring that the trustees and Nicholas Murray
Butler sought "to drive out or humiliate or terrorize every man who held
progressive, liberal, or unconventional views on political matters."
Elihu Root, Nicholas Murray Butler, and Stephen P. Duggan Sr. (CFR
director) founded the Institute for International Education in 1919.
Failed to secure the Republican presidential nomination in 1920. During
the 1920s Butler was a member of the General Committee of the American
Society for the Control of Cancer, chaired by Thomas W. Lamont, a
Rockefeller banker and Pilgrims Society member. John D. Rockefeller, Sr.
once wrote a public letter to Butler explaining why he supported the
prohibition movement. According to Richard Koudenhove-Kalergi in his
1958 book 'Eine Idee erobert Europa. Meine Lebenserinnerungen'
(translated): "One of my most energetic American friends and patrons
was the president of the Columbia University, Nicholas Murray Butler,
the president of the Carnegie Endowment at the same time. He wrote the
foreword to the American edition of Paneuropa." Kalergi's Paneuropa
movement was set up and funded by Max Warburg and Louis Rothschild in
1923. Paul and Felix Warburg were promoting the movement in the United
States and Rothschild-ally Leopold S. Amery was a major supporter from
the United Kingdom. Stephen P. Duggan, the CFR director and co-founder
of the Institute for International Education, became the president of
the American Cooperative Committee of the Pan-European Union (he held
this position from 1925 to 1940). In 1927 Butler assisted the U.S. State
Department in developing the Kellogg-Briand Pact. Failed to secure the
Republican presidential nomination in 1928. President of the Pilgrims
Society 1928-1946. Visitor of the Bohemian Grove and an honorary member
by 1929. Butler gave the core members of the Frankfurt School’s
Institute for Social Research a home in exile at Columbia University in
1934. These people were supporters of Georg Hegel, Karl Marx, Friedrich
Nietzsche, Sigmund Freud, and Max Weber. Among these people was Herbert
Marcuse, a Jewish Marxist Hegelian, who became the 'father of the New
Left' in the 1960s. President Italy-America Society 1929-1935. Director
of the New York Life Insurance Corporation 1929-1939. Nobel Peace Prize
1931. Received a gold medal from the National Institute of Social
Sciences at the Hotel Waldorf-Astoria in 1932, together with J.P.
Morgan. On November 19, 1937, Butler attended a meeting where Pilgrims
Society member Robert Cecil, 1st Viscount Cecil of Chelwood, received a
Nobel Prize for his work in establishing the League of Nations. Both
Butler and Lord Cecil held speeches about the role the League of Nations
should have. Although it is only a rumor, Butler is supposed to have
said at this meeting (in private) that communism was a tool of the
British financial powers to knock down national governments and to bring
about a world government in the future. Chairman Carnegie Corporation of
New York 1937-1945. Vice-president International Benjamin Franklin
Society in 1939. Governor Pan American Trade Committee in 1939. Governor
of the Metropolitan Club, founded by J.P. Morgan in 1891, and which

France, Dominican, Republic, Cuba, Germany, Greece, Yugoslavia, Belgium,
Poland, Italy, Romania, Czechoslovakia, Austria, Hungary, Holland, Chile
and other countries. Quigley has quoted Butler as saying "The world
is divided in to three classes of people: a very small group that makes
things happen, a somewhat larger group that watches things happen, and
the great multitude which never knows what happened."

that position into the Ford administration. Callaway resigned from his
post in June 1975 to become chairman of President Ford's newly-formed
campaign organization, the President Ford Committee (PFC). Callaway
headed the PFC for nine months, overseeing the recruitment of personnel,
the development of its organizational structure, and, in conjunction
with the White House, the implementation of political strategies. In
March 1976, Democratic Senator Floyd Haskell advanced charges that
Callaway, while serving as Secretary of the Army, had furthered his
family's interests in a Colorado ski resort by persuading the Forest
Service and the Civil Aeronautics Board to make rulings favorable to the
resort. Callaway asked President Ford to relieve him of his duties
pending the resolution of these charges. With Ford in a tough fight for
the Republican nomination, Callaway soon resigned as PFC chairman.

into a wealthy and prominent family. His grandfather was the founder of
the Walgreen Drugstore chain, his father a successful business
executive, his mother a matron of the American avant garde. In 1981,
President Ronald Reagan appointed Dart to be the vice-chair of the
National Council on Disability. The Darts embarked on a nationwide tour,
at their own expense, meeting with activists in every state. Dart and
others on the Council drafted a national policy that called for national
civil rights legislation to end the centuries old discrimination of
people with disabilities -- what would eventually become the Americans
with Disabilities Act of 1990. In 1986, Dart was appointed to head the
Rehabilitation Services Administration, a $3 billion federal agency that
oversees a vast array of programs for disabled people. A leader of the
international disability rights movement and a renowned human rights
activist, died last night at his home in Washington D.C. Widely
recognized as "the father of the Americans with Disabilities Act" and
"the godfather of the disability rights movement," Dart had for the past

States, on 1st January, 1883. After graduating from Columbia University
in 1907 he became a lawyer. Donovan was an active member of the
Republican Party and after meeting Herbert Hoover he worked as his
political adviser, speech writer and campaign manager. During the First
World War Donovan joined the United States Army and as a colonel in the
69th Infantry Regiment won the Medal of Honor and three Purple Hearts.
While in Europe he visited Russia and spent time with Alexander Kolchak
and the White Army. Donovan ran unsuccessfully as lieutenant governor in
1922 but was appointed by President Calvin Coolidge as his assistant
attorney general. In 1932 he was the Republican candidate for the post
of governor of New York. By the time Franklin D. Roosevelt was elected
president in 1932 Donovan was a millionaire Wall Street lawyer. He was a
strong opponent of Roosevelt's New Deal but shared the president's
concern about political developments in Nazi Germany and in 1940 Donovan
agreed to take part in several secret fact-finding missions in Europe.
In July 1941, Roosevelt appointed Donovan as his Coordinator of
Information. The following year Donovan became head of the Office of
Strategic Services (OSS), an organization that was given the responsible
for espionage and for helping the resistance movement in Europe. He was
helped in this by William Stephenson and Britain's MI6 chief, Stewart
Menzies. Donovan was given the rank of major general and during the
Second World War he built up a team of 16,000 agents working behind
enemy lines. As soon as the Second World War ended President Harry S.
Truman ordered the OSS to be closed down. However, it provided a model
for the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) established in September 1947.
Donovan returned to his law practice in 1946. In 1949, he became
chairman of the newly-founded American Committee on United Europe
(ACUE), which he helped to establish together with Churchill son-in-law
and CIA agent Duncan Sandys, Vatican agent Joseph Retinger, and Knights
of Malta member and CIA chief Allen Dulles. Donovan himself was another
member of the Knights of Malta. Through the ACUE a lot of CIA,
Rockefeller, and Ford money was funneled to Radio Free Europe, the
Economist, the European Council of Princes, the Gehlen Organization, and

Feulner is the President of enormously influential right-wing Heritage
Foundation, Washington’s leading public policy organization or think
tank. Unlike most other think tanks, Heritage not only suggests ideas
but actively pushes them in Congress. If you have any doubt that the
Heritage Foundation is engaged in systematic lobbying, consider the
words of Heritage vice presidents Stuart Butler and Kim Holmes,
published in the 1995 Annual Report issued in spring 1996:
Butler: Heritage now works very closely with the
congressional leadership.... Heritage has been involved in crafting
almost every piece of major legislation to move through Congress.
Holmes: Without exaggeration, I think we've in
effect become Congress's unofficial research arm.... We truly have
become an extension of the congressional staff, but on our own terms and
according to our own agenda.
Butler: That's right. As Kim knows, things
have been happening so fast on Capitol Hill we've had to sharpen our
management skills to take full advantage of the opportunities. There has
also been an unprecedented demand on us to "crunch the numbers" for the
new congressional leadership.
On January 18, 1989 President Reagan conferred the Presidential Citizens
Medal on Feulner as "a leader of the conservative movement." Feulner
also serves as Treasurer and Trustee of The Mont Pelerin Society;

||Charles Kellogg Field (1873-1948), was a
graduate of the Stanford class of 1895, and wrote Four-leaved
Clover: being Stanford Rhymes, in 1896, under the pen name Carolus
Ager. He also penned Stanford Stories, in 1900, with author Will Irwin.
He wrote several Bohemian Grove plays performed during midsummer jinks
between 1902 and 1918. Became editor of Sunset Magazine in 1911, after
Charles Sedgwick Aiken had headed it since 1902. Sunset was founded in
May 1898 by Southern Pacific Railroad. Chairman of this company was
Edward Harriman. One of the largest stockholders in the company was
Harknesses, also large shareholders of Standard Oil and intermarried
with the Stillman family, which, in its turn, was also intermarried with
the Rockefellers. The magazine dealt with the outdoors, artistic
writings, and things about everyday life. It also wrote about the
Asian-American relations along the Pacific Coast, a sensitive issue for
the magazine because of its geographic proximity to large Asian
communities in San Francisco. In 1914, Southern Pacific Railroad sold
the Magazine to Woodhead, [charles] Field
and Company, largely because many contributors to the magazine were
against many of the policies of the extremely wealthy industrialists.
After Southern Pacific bounced it, the magazine focused even more on the
works of Bohemians like Ina Coolbrith, Jack London, Bret Harte, and John
Muir (founder of the Sierra Club). Until his death in 1910, the magazine
also published the works of Pilgrims Society member and Bohemian Club
member Mark Twain. Charles Field was very much a member of Bohemian Club
and literary circles during the early part of the century. He entered
broadcasting in his 60s, and was “Cheerio” on KGO-AM in the mid 1930s.
In 1936, he bought the Johnson-Field house and turned the barn into a
theater. Supposedly, he hanged himself from the banister in 1948.
According to a webpage written by the Newfane Elementary School:
"Mr. Charles K. Field bought the house in 1936. He was famous and had a
national radio show. He turned the barn into a theater. A ballet troupe
even trained there. On September 3, 1948, Mr. Field hanged himself from
the banister." Field was one of the friends of Herbert Hoover from
their Stanford days.

Representatives for 24 years from 1949 to 1973, and became Minority
Leader of the Republican Party in the House. Ford was very popular with
the voters in his district and was always re-elected with 60% margins.
During his tenure, Ford was chosen to serve on the Warren Commission, a
special task force set up to investigate the causes of, and quell rumors
regarding the assassination of President John F. Kennedy. After Vice
President Spiro Agnew resigned during Richard Nixon's presidency, on
October 10, 1973, Nixon nominated Ford to take Agnew's place, under the
25th Amendment - the first time it was applied. The United States Senate
voted 92 to 3 to confirm Ford on November 27, 1973. Ford had long been
one of President Nixon's most outspoken supporters (someone joked once
that "He is one of the few people who not only admires Nixon, but
actually likes him!"). Ford traveled widely as Vice President and made
many speeches defending the embattled President. He cited the many
achievements of President Nixon and dismissed Watergate as a media event
and a tragic sideshow. When Nixon then resigned in the wake of the
Watergate scandal on August 9, 1974, Ford assumed the presidency,
proclaiming that "our long national nightmare is over". On August 20
Ford nominated former New York Governor Nelson Rockefeller to fill the
Vice Presidency he had vacated, again under the 25th Amendment. United

MacArthur's deputy chief of staff, to whom Haig was aide-de-camp. Served
in Korea 1950-1951 where he freed Sun Myung Moon (the person who thinks
he's the new Messiah) from a concentration camp during the battle of
Inchon in September 1950. Studied business administration at Columbia
University 1954-1955. Operations officer of a tank battalion in Europe
1956-1958. Student at Naval War College 1959-1960. M.A. in International
Relations from Georgetown University 1962. In 1962 he was selected over
many other applicants to become a staff aide to a Kennedy Administration
task force on Cuba directed by Cyrus Vance and Joseph A. Califano, Jr.
Here he became involved with the CIA trying to overthrow Fidel Castro.
He was the Pentagon's representative to a highly classified unit known
as the "Subcommittee on Subversion", who's target was Cuba. Stayed at

aide on the National Security Council staff 1968-1969. Senior Military

Henry Kissinger, 1969-1973. Worked all the time-every day, every night,
and every weekend-to insure that the flow of documents in and out of
Kissinger's office was uninterrupted. Haig was one of the persons that
kept pushing the bombing of Cambodia and was working every moderate
staff member out of office. Coordinated Nixon's historic visit to China
in February 1972. Haig long was rumored to have been Deep Throat, the
inside source for the Washington Post as the paper exposed the Nixon
cover-up of the Watergate break-in of June 1972. Haig helped South
Vietnamese President Nguyen Van Thieu to negotiate the final cease-fire
talks in October 1972. Promoted to full 4 star general in 1972. Vice

contact with this neo-fascist lodge that fought the communist influence
on the Italian government. U.S. Secretary of State 1981-1982. Reagan
didn't like him, because Haig pushed his own policies too hard. During
the confusion after Ronald Reagan was shot by John Hinckley, Haig
asserts at the White House, "I'm in control here", forgetting about the
Constitutional line of succession. One of the more famous Haigisms from
those days is "That's not a lie. It is a terminological inexactitude".

least 1990) as a fellow of the Hudson Institute. In 1984 he was the

Associates). It has a strong focus on the former Soviet Union and China
and today it is run by the United Technologies Corporation, to which
Haig still is a senior advisor today. A 1991 Congressional report in the
aftermath of the BNL affair said about Haig's role in United
Technologies: "neither Paul nor Haig would comment on what Haig was
doing for the company." A basic description (the only thing
available) about Worldwide Associates reads: "... the company
assists corporations in developing and implementing acquisition and
marketing strategies. It also provides advice on the domestic and
international political, economic and security environments and their
effects on the global marketplace." Today's managing director of
Worldwide Associates is retired Army Colonel Sherwood D. Goldberg, a

Chairman of the International Advisory Board of the American
International Group (AIG), a partner of Kissinger Associates. Also
chairman of the Advisory Boards of AIG Asian Infrastructure Funds I & II
and a director of AIG Global. In 1997, Kissinger became the central
advisor to the Business Coalition for US-China Trade, a group of about a
1000 leading companies willing to invest in China. In 2000, Henry
Kissinger was quoted by Business Wire: "Hank Greenberg, Pete
Peterson and I have been close friends and business associates for
decades." Maurice Greenburg is head of AIG and Peter G. Peterson is
head of The Blackstone Group, which is the other major partner of
Kissinger Associates. Peterson is also a former chairman of Lehman
Brothers. Kissinger is a friend of Lynn Forester and introduced her to
Sir Evelyn de Rothschild at the 1998 Bilderberg conference. They would
soon become married. After Pulitzer Price winning journalist Peter
Arnett produced a CNN report on Operation Tailwind (a Vietnam operation
in which US Special Forces allegedly killed US defectors with Sarin) in
1998, Kissinger and his friends called up CNN to demand that the news
network should distance itself from the story (a story which CNN
initially approved) and made sure that the producers of the show were
publicly humiliated and fired. Arnett was fired again by NBC and
National Geographic in March 2003 immediately after he said the Bush
Administration was looking for a plan B now that Iraqi resistance turned
out to be much more intense than expected. Within 24 hours the Daily
Mail hired him. When Henry Kissinger is invited to speak at the United
Nations Association on April 11, 2001 Lord Jacob Rothschild is flanking
his side. Picked as the initial head of the 9/11 investigating committee
in 2003, although he turned out to be too controversial to remain in
that position. Henry Kissinger is a patron of the Open Russia Foundation
since 2001, together with Lord Jacob Rothschild. The Foundation was set
up by Mikhail Khodorkovsky, a controversial oligarch, later locked up by
Putin. Honorary trustee of the Aspen Institute. Because of previous
international attempts by European and South American judges to question
him, he is known to take legal advice before traveling to certain
countries in either continent.

||Loyal McLaren (1972) writes about how
Prince Philip sought to visit the Grove: Before leaving London for a
visit to California in November, 1962, Prince Philip wrote to Jack
Merrill, an old friend and expressed a desire to visit the Bohemian
Grove... Since the weather was unpredictable at this time of the year;
we decided it would be safer to hold the party inside the grill and bar
building... we restricted the invitation to former presidents of the
club, committee chairmen, and groups of our highly talented
entertainers... At luncheon... Charlie Kendrick delivered the speech of
welcome. However, the show was stolen by Prince Philip, who made a most
amusing but salty speech in keeping with the traditions of Bohemia. (p.
451) - 'Taken from A Relative Advantage: Sociology of the San
Francisco Bohemian Club', by Peter Martin Phillips.
Born in 1921 on the Isle of Corfu, Greece. Parents
were evacuated from Greece after a revolution and both became depressed
(father) or mentally instable (mother). Studied in Germany under Kurt
Hahn and both came to Scotland in 1933. Played polo in his youth, often
against Sir Evelyn de Rothschild. Philip is the Duke of Edinburgh, a
Knight of the Order of the Garter, a Knight of the Order of the Thistle,
Grand Master and First or Principal Knight of the Order of the British
Empire, and was a prince of Greece and Denmark until he married. Patron
or President of 814 organizations. His wife, Queen Elizabeth II is
patron of the Pilgrims Society. Long career in the navy from the start
of WWII as a midshipsman to commanding his own frigate, the HMS Magpie.
William R. Denslow's 10,000 Famous Freemasons: "Philip was initiated
in Navy Lodge No. 2612 of London on Dec 5, 1952. Present at the
initiation were the Earl of Scarbrough, grand master, q.v., and Geoffrey
Fisher, archbishop of Canterbury." Philip is a Master Mason, never
having shown great interest in the organization, while his cousin,
Prince Edward (b. 1935) is the grand master of the United Grand Lodge.
He and his wife set off for a tour of the Commonwealth, with visits to
Africa, Australia, and New Zealand in 1952. They went on to visit the
remote parts of the Commonwealth in 1956. Gordon Creighton, a Foreign
Service official and Intelligence officer, concluded his story about a
reported 1960s UFO landing on the estate of Prince Philip with: "So
there had been a landing on the estate of Mountbatten and there was
Mountbatten's great interest." The entire testimony was made during
an interview with the Disclosure Project in September 2000. Prince
Philip supposedly had a drawer full of sketches and information on
different types of UFOs. Philip co-founded the WWF International in 1961
with Julian Huxley and Prince Bernhard. He has been the long time
president of WWF UK. Co-founded the 1001 Nature Trust and 1001 Club from
1971 to 1974, together with Anton Rupert and Prince Bernhard. Co-founded
the Interfaith consultations between Jews, Christians, and Muslims in
1984, together with Crown Prince Hassan of Jordan and Sir Evelyn de
Rothschild at Windsor castle. In August 1988, Prince Philip said to the
West German Deutsche Press Agentur: "In the event that I am
reincarnated, I would like to return as a deadly virus, in order to
contribute something to solve overpopulation". He wrote something
along similar lines in the foreword of the 1987 book 'If I Were An
Animal', written by Fleur Cowles. Philip was supposedly hostile to Diana
after she divorced Charles in 1996. Mohamed Al-Fayed claimed Prince
Philip had ordered Diana's murder who was killed in a car crash on
August 31, 1997. Queen Elizabeth II said to Diana's butler Paul Burrell
in December 1997: "Nobody, Paul has been as close to a member of my
family as you have... There are powers at work in this country about
which we have no knowledge." She advised him to be cautious and to
lay low. Unlike his son, Charles, Philip supports genetically modified
foods. On June 7, 2000, The Guardian quoted the Duke of Edinburgh as
saying: "Do not let us forget we have been genetically modifying
animals and plants ever since people started selective breeding."
Philip is known to be the head of the family; what he says, generally
goes. He is still president emeritus of the WWF International.

|Pauley, Edwin W.
||Pauley made his fortune running oil companies
from the mid-1920s onward. He became involved with the Democratic Party
as a fundraiser in 1930s, eventually becoming treasurer of the
Democratic National Committee. In the summer of 1944, while treasurer of
the DNC, Pauley was part of a group that persuaded Roosevelt to choose
Truman over Henry Wallace as the vice-presidential nominee. He later
served as United States representative to the Allied Reparations
Committee from 1945-1947. In May 1946, Pauley met with Herbert Hoover to
discuss the impact of food relief on Japan's ability to pay reparations.
Pauley was en route to East Asia to discuss with General MacArthur the
Japanese situation in light of rising tensions with the Soviet Union.
When Truman nominated Pauley to be Undersecretary of the Navy in 1946,
he was opposed by Secretary of the Interior, Harold Ickes. Ickes held
that Pauley's ties to oil interests was a clear conflict of interest.
Truman pressed ahead with the nomination, so Ickes resigned. This
effectively scuttled Pauley's nomination, and led him to return to
working behind the scenes in the Democratic Party. Pauley served in
Truman's 'kitchen cabinet' and advised Presidents Kennedy and Johnson.
He also was an ardent supporter of UCLA, both as a regent and as a
financial donor. Pauley Pavilion is named for him.

earned a reputation as one of the preeminent executives in professional
sports during his years as president and chief executive officer of the
49ers. Policy was a member of the NFL Finance Committee and the

Foundation and expects to maintain a high level of civic and charitable
involvement in the Cleveland area. He holds the prestigious Silver Cable
Car Award from the San Francisco Convention and Visitors Bureau and The
Mayor's Fiscal Advisory Committee Award in recognition of his managerial
skills. Some have asked why Carmen Policy used to spent months at a time
defending some of the most notorious mobsters between New York and
Chicago. Other questions are tougher. Like why his name was mentioned
repeatedly, and often cryptically, in secretly recorded 1980
conversations after mobsters laundered money through Policy's law
partner. Or what Policy might have known about alleged links between the
gangsters he represented and one of his biggest business clients. Or why
so many of his business partners wind up in trouble with the law. Policy
will not answer these or any other questions about his past. A Browns
spokesman turned down a request for an interview, saying Policy does not
have the time.

general, becoming the first African American to hold that rank, and was
named chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He had an important role in

Youth, a charitable organization formed to help needy and at-risk U.S.
children. Powell was appointed secretary of state by President George W.
Bush in 2001. He advocated the so-called Powell doctrine—that U.S.
military power only be used in overwhelming strength to achieve
well-defined strategic national interests—while promoting “a uniquely
American internationalism,” and he also showed a particular interest in
African affairs. As secretary of state, however, his influence on

Society circles. He was still there at the time of the great San
Francisco earthquake of 1906. The New York Times on June 25, 1899:
"The most noteworthy performance of the kind occurred in 1893 when
Joseph D. Redding, now a lawyer in New York, devised a beautiful
spectacle, "The Cremation of Care." Time Magazine in 1933:
"Origin of the Grove plays goes back to one Joseph D. Redding, San
Francisco attorney who died last year. He proposed and wrote the first
play, The Man of the Forest. In 1911 his Natoma was set to music by
Victor Herbert, produced in Philadelphia with Mary Garden and John
McCormack.' The best western composers have contributed scores for the
Grove plays and Bohemians aver that much beautiful music is thereby lost
to the world, as the plays are seldom given public performance."
Redding was respected as an attorney, musician, composer, chess player,
and scientist. Was very interested in marine life.

1942 in the prosecution of organized crime in New York City. He entered
the US Navy in 1942, serving on the USS Intrepid, including her action
in the Battle of Okinawa. While serving as a Committee Counsel to a US
Senate committee, he examined the documentation from the House
Un-American Activities Committee's investigation of Alger Hiss at the
request of then-Congressman Richard M. Nixon, and advised Nixon that
Hiss had lied and that the case against him should be pursued. In 1950,
Rogers became a partner in a New York City law firm, Dwight, Royall,
Harris, Koegel & Caskey. Thereafter he returned to this firm when not in
government service. It was later renamed Rogers & Wells, and
subsequently Clifford Chance Rogers & Wells. He worked in the firm's
Washington, D.C. office until several months before his death. Rogers
joined the Administration of President Dwight D. Eisenhower in a
Deputy-Attorney-General position in 1953, and then served from 1957 to
1961, as Attorney General. He remained a close advisor to
then-Vice-President Nixon, throughout the Eisenhower administration,
especially in the slush fund scandal that led to Nixon's Checkers
speech, and Eisenhower's two medical crises. He also served as Secretary
of State in the Nixon Cabinet, from 1969 January 22 through 1973
September 3. Rogers is also notable for leading the investigation into
the explosion of the space shuttle Challenger. This panel, called the
Rogers Commission, was the first to criticize NASA management for its
role in negligence of safety in the Space Shuttle program. Among the
more famous members of Rogers' panel were astronauts Neil Armstrong and
Sally Ride, Air Force general Donald Kutyna, and physicist Richard
Feynman. Member of the Council on Foreign Relations.

||In 1970, as a protégé of Donald Segretti
(later convicted as a Watergate conspirator), Karl Rove sneaked into the
campaign office of Illinois Democrat Alan Dixon and stole some
letterhead, which he used to print fake campaign rally fliers promising
"free beer, free food, girls and a good time for nothing," and
distributed them at rock concerts and homeless shelters. Rove admitted
the incident years later, saying "I was nineteen and I got involved in a
political prank." Rove learned at age nineteen, during his parents'
divorce, that the man who raised him, a mineral geologist, was not his
biological father. Rove's mother committed suicide in Reno, Nevada, in
1981. Rove dropped out of the University of Utah in 1971 to become the
Executive Director of the College Republican National Committee and held
this position until 1972, when he became the National Chairman
(1973-1974). In this role, Karl Rove had access to powerful politicians
and government officials of the Republican party, and formed ties with
George H. W. Bush, then Chairman of the Republican National Committee
(1973-1974). For the next few years, Rove worked in various Republican
circles and assisted George H. W. Bush's 1980 vice-presidential
campaign. Rove is credited for introducing Bush to Lee Atwater, who
would go on to play a critical role in Bush's 1988 presidential
campaign. Like Atwater, Karl Rove is well known for his effective
campaign tactics, employing push polls and frequently attacking an
opponent on the opponent's strongest issue. In 1981, Rove founded direct
mail consulting firm, Karl Rove + Company, based out of Austin, Texas.
This firm's first clients included Republican Governor Bill Clements and
Democratic Congressman Phil Gramm, who later became a Republican
Congressman and United States Senator. In 1993, Rove began advising
George W. Bush's gubernatorial campaign. He continued, however, to
operate his consulting business until 1999, when he sold the firm to
focus his efforts on Bush's bid for the presidency. In 1986, just before
a crucial debate in the election for governor of Texas, Karl Rove
claimed that his office had been bugged by the Democrats. The police and
FBI investigated and discovered that bug's battery was so small that it
needed to be changed every few hours, and the investigation was dropped.
Critics alleged that Rove had bugged his own office to garner sympathy
votes in the close governor's race. Rove is thought to be behind
misleading Swift Boat Veterans for Truth television ads that quoted
Kerry as saying U.S. military personnel in Vietnam "had personally
raped, cut off ears, cut off heads," "randomly shot at civilians," and
"razed villages in a fashion reminiscent of Genghis Khan," without
Kerry's qualification that he was reporting what others said at a
Vietnam veterans' conference, and not what Kerry had personally
witnessed. Another ad from SBVT accused Kerry of lying to win his
Vietnam combat medals. George W. Bush called Rove the "architect" of his
2004 Presidential Campaign in his 3 November 2004 acceptance speech.
Rove has been accused of pulling many other dirty tricks over the years.
In March 2001, Rove met with executives from Intel, successfully
advocating a merger between a Dutch company and an Intel company
supplier. Rove owned $100,000 in Intel stock at the time. In June 2001,
Rove met with two pharmaceutical industry lobbyists. At the time, Rove
held almost $250,000 in drug industry stocks. On 30 June 2001, Rove
divested his stocks in 23 companies, which included more than $100,000
in each of Enron, Boeing, General Electric, and Pfizer. On 30 June 2001,
the White House admitted that Rove was involved in administration energy
policy meetings, while at the same time holding stock in energy
companies including Enron. June 23, 2005, marked another controversial
statement from Rove. "Conservatives saw the savagery of 9/11 in the
attacks and prepared for war; liberals saw the savagery of the 9/11
attacks and wanted to prepare indictments and offer therapy and
understanding for our attackers," said Mr. Rove at a fund-raiser in New
York City for the Conservative Party of New York State. Presently
embroiled in controversy concerning his involvement in revealing the
identity of CIA employee Valerie Plame, allegedly in retaliation for her
husband's criticisms of the administration.

||Born December 13, 1920, in New York City, the
son or Birl E. and Margaret Pratt Shultz. Charles Pratt (1830-1891),
Margaret's grandfather, became a partner of John D. Rockefeller after
merging his oil company with Standard Oil in 1874. His son, Shultz's
grandfather, Charles Millard Pratt (1858-1933), was treasurer of
Standard Oil and his widow bequeathed their New York mansion, the
Charles Pratt House, to the Council on Foreign Relations in 1945, which
serves as its headquarters ever since. Birl Earl Shultz (1883-1955),
George's father, was a personnel director with the American
International Corporation and founded the New York Stock Exchange
Institute (November 10, 1955, NY Times, obituary). B.A. degree in
economics from Princeton University in 1942. Attended Cap & Gown events,
according to Kay Griggs, just as Allen Dulles, Donald Rumsfeld, William

Faculty member at MIT 1946-1947. At MIT, according to several accounts,
Shultz teamed up with the German social engineer Kurt Lewin, who was
setting up a psychological research institute there (died in 1947).
Lewin emigrated from Germany to the US in 1932 and is said to have been
a leading member of the Tavistock Institute (at the very least he served
as a source of inspiration to many of their psychiatrists). Taught in
both the MIT Department of Economics and the MIT Sloan School of
Management 1948-1957. Earned a Ph.D. from MIT in industrial economics in
1949. Chairman of MIT's Industrial Relations Division 1954-1957. Leave
of absence in 1955 to serve on President Dwight Eisenhower's Council of
Economic Advisers as a senior staff economist. Joined the University of
Chicago Graduate School of Business as professor of industrial relations
in 1957 and served as dean of the school from 1962 to 1968. Involved in
Nixon's election campaign of 1968. Nixon's Secretary of Labor 1969-1970.
One of the main organizers of the US-USSR Trade and Economic Council in
1972. Nixon's Secretary of the Treasury 1972-1974. It was during this
period that Schultz, along with Paul Volcker and Arthur Burns, supported
the decision of the Nixon administration to end the gold standard and
the Bretton Woods system. Shultz also regularly played golf with Stephen
Bechtel Jr. at Burning Tree. President and director of the Bechtel Group
1974-1982, a privately-held huge construction company strongly linked to
the intelligence agencies. Also acted as president of the Bechtel

Foreign Relations and Atlantic Council of the United States. Member
National Security Planning Group. On Oct. 25, 1984, speaking at the Park
Avenue Synagogue in New York, Shultz delivered remarks calling for the
U.S. to adopt a preemptive first-strike policy, such was implemented 20
years later by the Bush-Cheney administration. According to John
Perkins, former chief economist and "economic hitman", Shultz functioned
as the heir to Robert Strange McNamara (1001 Club) as one of the top
figures in the new imperial pyramid of power, which employed the
structure of economic hitmen to bleed and crush nations. Examples are
the Philippines' Ferdinand Marcos in 1986, and such as the various
attacks on Panama, culminating in the 1989 invasion. Then-Secretary of
State Shultz had spoken one day earlier, Sept. 30, threatening the
nations present that they had better stay in line, and pay their debts
to the IMF. As Secretary of State, he automatically became a honorary
member of the Pilgrims Society and gave at least one speech to this club
in 1985. In August 1988, while travelling from the airport to La Paz,
Bolivia, Shultz's motorcade was bombed, supposedly by drug dealers.
There was only material damage. In 1989 he rejoined Bechtel as a
director and senior counselor (he still is anno 2005). Director at
Gilead Sciences since 1996. Director Fremont Group, Inc. (owned by the
Bechtel corporation) and the Charles Schwab Corporation. Chairman of

Rumsfeld have been other members). Has visited the Trilateral Commission
in the 1990s. Teamed up with George Soros in 1998 to promote a series of
referenda to legalize narcotics. According to author James Mann, who
wrote the Rise of the Vulcans book about Bush's inner Cabinet, Shultz
initiated a discussion with George W. in the Spring of 1998, whereby the
future President sat down in Shultz's living room on the Stanford
University campus, in order to see if he would be the right man for the
presidency. At that meeting were Martin Anderson, the former advisor to
both Richard Nixon and Ronald Reagan; Abraham Sofaer, a former Shultz
aide; John Cogan and John Taylor, two economics professors; and
Stanford's provost, and Shultz protege, Condoleezza Rice. After the

January 22, 1973. As Deputy Secretary, he supervised the
Administration's program to restructure and improve U.S. financial

|Skinner, David .E.
||David "Ned" Skinner took over Alaska Steamship
after the death of his father, G. W. Skinner, in 1953. Increased
competition from state-subsidized ferries and barge operations had put
the company into a decline and Skinner had to close it in 1971, a major
disappointment in his business life. But as head of the Skinner
Corporation, Ned branched out into real estate (the Skinner Building and
5th Avenue Theatre in Seattle, Carillon Point in Kirkland), Pepsi-Cola
bottling, and NC Machinery tractor sales. By 1988, the Skinner
Corporation was the 10th largest privately held corporation in the U.S.
In 1960, Skinner joined with other investors to form the Pentagram
Corporation to build the Space Needle, a futuristic, 605-foot tower and
revolving restaurant that would become the icon for the Century 21
Seattle World’s Fair and for Seattle itself. The 1962 World’s Fair
marked the shift in Seattle from "provincial backwater into a genuinely
cosmopolitan port city" (Crowley). Skinner is said to have raised more
than $5 million for the fair and was prepared to take a loss on his own
investment if it raised Seattle’s profile in the world. Skinner sat on
the boards of the Boeing Company, Safeco, Pacific Northwest Bell,
Pacific National Bank, and actively guided corporate policy. Skinner
died of cancer in 1988.

||Also a Pilgrims Society member. Mark Twain
(pseudonym of Samuel Langhorne Clemens) was an American writer,
journalist and humorist, who won a worldwide audience for his stories of
the youthful adventures of Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Finn. Clemens was
born on November 30, 1835 in Florida, Missouri, of a Virginian family.
He was brought up in Hannibal, Missouri. After his father's death in
1847, he was apprenticed to a printer and wrote for his brother's
newspaper. He later worked as a licensed Mississippi river-boat pilot.
The Civil War put an end to the steamboat traffic and Clemens moved to
Virginia City, where he edited the Territorial Enterprise. On February
3, 1863, 'Mark Twain' was born when Clemens signed a humorous travel
account with that pseudonym. In 1864 Twain left for California, and
worked in San Francisco as a reporter. He visited Hawaii as a
correspondent for The Sacramento Union, publishing letters on his trip
and giving lectures. He set out on a world tour, traveling in France and
Italy. His experiences were recorded in 1869 in The Innocents Abroad,
which gained him wide popularity, and poked fun at both American and
European prejudices and manners. The success as a writer gave Twain
enough financial security to marry Olivia Langdon in 1870. They moved
next year to Hartford. Twain continued to lecture in the United States
and England. Between 1876 and 1884 he published several masterpieces,
Tom Sawyer (1881) and The Prince And The Pauper (1881). Life On The
Mississippi appeared in 1883 and Huckleberry Finn in 1884. In the 1890s
Twain lost most of his earnings in financial speculations and in the
failure of his own publishing firm. To recover from the bankruptcy, he
started a world lecture tour, during which one of his daughters died.
Twain toured New Zealand, Australia, India, and South Africa. He wrote
such books as The Tragedy Of Pudd'head Wilson (1884), Personal
Recollections Of Joan Of Arc (1885), A Connecticut Yankee in King
Arthur's Court (1889) and the travel book Following The Equator (1897).
During his long writing career, Twain also produced a considerable
number of essays. The death of his wife and his second daughter darkened
the author's later years, which is seen in his posthumously published
autobiography (1924). Mark Twain was present at a February 1908 Pilgrim
dinner in New York, as reported by the New York Times (The newspaper
wrote a huge amount of articles about him).

|Walker, Robert W.
||General Walters occupied a front- row seat at
an array of historic events in the post-World War II era, as a
translator, adviser, administrator and diplomat. He spoke seven or eight
languages, five of them fluently, and served part time as an interpreter
to five presidents. Vernon Anthony Walters was born in New York City on
January 3, 1917, and attended Stonyhurst College in England. He joined
the United States Army in 1941, and served in North Africa and Italy
during World War II, retiring in 1976 as a Lieutenant General. From 1955
to 1960, he was a staff assistant to President Eisenhower, acting as
interpreter for the President, Vice President and senior diplomatic and
military officials. Appointed by President Nixon, General Walters was
deputy chief of the C.I.A. from 1972 to 1976. Just weeks after Mr. Nixon
sent him to the agency, the White House tried to involve the C.I.A. in
the Watergate scandal that eventually forced Mr. Nixon's resignation.
According to later Congressional testimony by John W. Dean 3d, the
President's counsel at the time, Mr. Nixon had picked General Walters
for the job in order to have a "good friend" in the intelligence agency.
Two Nixon aides, H. R. Haldeman and John D. Ehrlichman, asked General
Walters to caution the Federal Bureau of Investigation to limit its
inquiries lest they compromise C.I.A. operations. "It simply did not
occur to me that the chief of staff of the President might be asking me
something that was illegal or wrong," Mr. Walters wrote in his memoir.
But on orders from his superior, Richard M. Helms, the director of
central intelligence, the general rescinded his advisory to the F.B.I.
According to General Walters, Mr. Dean subsequently asked him repeatedly
to pay off the Watergate burglars with secret C.I.A. funds, but he
refused to do so and threatened to resign publicly if there was one more
such call. In 1981, President Reagan offered General Walters the job of
roving ambassador, which he accepted. Finally, he served as ambassador
to the United Nations from 1985 to 1988, and as ambassador to West
Germany from 1989 to 1991. He had many opportunities in his career to
witness the making of history. He was W. Averell Harriman's aide in the
early years of the cold war, accompanied President Truman to a meeting
with an insubordinate General Douglas MacArthur during the Korean War
and shuttled with President Eisenhower to a series of summit meetings,
held in Geneva and White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia, among other
places. As translator for Vice President Nixon during his good-will tour
of Latin America in 1958, General Walters was cut in the mouth by broken
glass when a mob stoned their car in Caracas. Later, as a military
attaché in Paris, General Walters is remembered for borrowing the
private plane of President Georges Pompidou to smuggle Henry A.
Kissinger in and out of France for clandestine meetings with Le Duc Tho
of North Vietnam."He was great as our James Bond, getting us in and
out secretly, even giving us code names," said Winston Lord, former
president of the Council on Foreign Relations, who accompanied Mr.
Kissinger to the secret talks with the Vietnamese. General Walters, a
bachelor, leaves no immediate survivors. Walters was a Knight of Malta.

|Watson, Thomas J., Jr.
||Eldest son of Thomas J. Watson, the founder of
IBM, known to have struggled throughout his life with depression, earned
a business degree from Brown University in 1937, and worked a few years
as an IBM salesman. In May of 1956 Watson Jr. was named CEO of the
company. Only six weeks later his father died. Thomas Jr. took the
single biggest risk in IBM's history when he decided to make all of its
previous computer software (and hardware, for that matter) obsolete, by
developing a uniform range of new IBM mainframe computers. The new
machines were compatible within the range—i.e., they could run the same
software and use the same peripherals—but incompatible with the former
mainframes. The new series, called the System/360, almost completely
bankrupted the entire company; its highly successful launch in 1964 was
called by Fortune magazine "IBM's $5 Billion Gamble". That same year,
because of this success, Dwight D. Eisenhower at the New York World's
Fair awarded Thomas J. Watson Jr. the Medal of Freedom, the highest
award a U.S. President can bestow on a civilian. Watson was CEO of IBM
from 1956 to 1971 and became a US ambassador to the Soviet Union
1979-1981. He also was a trustee of the China Institute and was called
by Fortune Magazine “the most successful capitalist who ever lived”

Council on Foreign Relations.

"channeled'' material. Born March 12, 1873, at Grand Rapids, Michigan,
he studied at the University of Michigan (Ph.D., 1895; M.A., 1903). In
1904 he married Elizabeth (Betty) Grant, and they settled in California
where he became well known as an author of many books, articles, and
short stories dealing with his experiences around the state in mining
and lumber camps, and on exploration trips. In March, 1918, Betty and
Stewart Edward White had their first experience with the spirit world.
At a party with friends, the Ouija board, being used as a parlor game,
spelled the name "Betty" over and over again. When Betty took over the
pointer, it spelled out a number of messages, including the advice to
try "automatic writing." For over a year Betty and Stewart experimented
with "automatic writing," receiving a number of messages which proved
evidential. Betty was slowly led into another method in which she
entered a higher state of consciousness, speaking in her own voice or
the voice of another entity. The entities communicating through Betty
declined to be identified, wishing to remain anonymous, and thus were
named "the Invisibles" by the the Whites. "The Invisibles" led her into
another, higher world, teaching her to create a new identity. Stewart
recorded the messages and experiences which Betty reported in her higher
state of consciousness. "The Invisibles" indicated that they were not
only teaching Betty to enter a higher world of spiritual consciousness
but were interested in teaching all humans how to enter this world.
Betty and Stewart White continued the sessions with "the Invisibles"
from 1919 to 1936. Having waited for seventeen years, they finally
decided to publish their first book outlining their adventures in
learning about and entering the higher spiritual world.
