A bit of magic, as it were, and Poof! -- the BSI dinner vanished forever from The Players, ancient club of William Gillette, Frederic Dorr Steele, and quite a few other Irregulars, at http://www.bsiarchivalhistory.org/BSI_Archival_History/Thucydides_dept.html
(Not to mention other scandalous bohemian matters at the Editor's Gas-Bag.)

Good and perhaps all too relevant advice from an organizational science consultant, starting at http://www.bsiarchivalhistory.org/BSI_Archival_History/Gas-Bag.html

Some will remember the “March of Time” documentary news features shown regularly in American movie theaters between the mid 1930s and early 1950s, and those who don’t have an historical treat in store when Turner Classic Movies airs a four-hour marathon of them this Sunday night. New York Times coverage of the event is here, and TCM’s own story here. Four hours is a heavy dose at one sitting, but one can record the entire thing for more than a few watchings.
Back in 1994, at the BSI Cocktail Party on Saturday, January 8th, Clint Gould and I performed a “The March of Time” parody based on the BSI Archival History to that point (three volumes had been published by then), and I will post it on the website this Sunday. Check the website's Welcome or Editor's Gas-Bag pages for the link.

I don't know the answer to that, but memories of both "Colonel Warburton's Madness" and Holmes Peak with Richard Warner ("High Tor") as its Head Sherpla are accumulating at http://www.bsiarchivalhistory.org/BSI_Archival_History/Thucydides_dept.html
