A Talk at The Down Town Association for Cambridge, Oxford and London School of Economics Alumni
by Barry Singer
I am delighted to share an invitation to a talk I will be giving, hosted by Cambridge University Alumni in New York, for Cambridge, Oxford and London School of Economics alums at The Down Town Association on September 12.
The subject will, of course, be Churchill Style. The setting could not be more appealing. Located at 60 Pine Street in the financial district, The Down Town Association, is one of the oldest social clubs in New York – first chartered in 1859 and still occupying its original clubhouse, built in 1887 (plus an expansion completed in 1911).
Down Town Association members have included Franklin D. Roosevelt – a member from 1913 until his death in 1945 – four Secretaries of State, including John Foster Dulles, five Attorneys General, one Secretary of Defense and two Secretaries of War. The Club has no political orientation; in fact, two of the three men who ran against Roosevelt for the Presidency were also members of the Association. (Can you name them?)
The event will commence with cocktails and passed hors d’oeuvres at 6:30 pm, followed by my talk at 7:30 pm. The cost is $20 per guest. Please RSVP to: Reception@thedta.com or 212-422-1982.
