The accounts of Wednesday Night Salons in chronological order appear below. The task of archiving them is on-going . As stated elsewhere, it was not until the early 90s that we began to keep weekly records of discussions, therefore, there are, unfortunately, major gaps in the earlier chronicles.
Most, but not all, accounts until 2014 were written by our Scribe, Herb Bercovitz, and edited as required, by Diana, however a number of other Wednesday Nighters have also contributed their note-keeping talents on occasions when Herb was absent. Since Herb has no longer been up to the task, many of the entries for Wednesday Night consist only of the “Prologues”. Chatham House rules prevail!
