      The Society of Civil War Historians, founded in 1984 by Grady McWhiney and
      Jerry Russell, will meet on Saturday, November 17, in the Blue Room of the
      Fairmont Hotel in New Orleans. The reception begins at 5 p.m., followed by
      a banquet at 6 p.m.
      The Fairmont Hotel, located at University Place, is among the oldest "grand
      hotels" in the nation. The original, called the Grunewald, opened in 1893.
      Enlarged in 1908, it was renamed the Roosevelt Hotel in the early 1920s in
      honor of the former president. The original hotel was demolished, but the
      expansion was refurbished and expanded, and Huey P. Long used the hotel as
      his headquarters in the late 1920s. In 1963, it became part of the Fairmont
      chain and a recent $60 million renovation has restored it to its former
      grandeur. In 1932, the hotel became the home of radio station WWL, a
      50,000-watt clear channel AM station which covered the Mid-South and
      Midwest. The station broadcast daily (and nightly) from the Blue Room, the
      city's premier supper club. The SCWH banquet will be held in this historic
      room where such historic personalities as Marlene Dietrich, Jimmy Durante,
      Tony Bennett, and many of the "big band" groups performed.
      Following dinner, President Gary W. Gallagher, University of Virginia, will
      introduce the evening's speakers, Joan E. Cashin, Ohio State University, and
      Brooks D. Simpson, Arizona State University. Comments will be by Joan
      Waugh, UCLA.
      The executive secretary of the Society is Stephen D. Engel, Dept. of
      History, Box 3091, Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton FL 33431
      The editor of the quarterly newsletter is Anne J. Bailey, Dept. of History
      & Geography, Georgia State College & University, Campus Box 47,
      Milledgeville GA 31061 <abailey@...>.
      Russell is the executive director.
      Society membership ($10 a year to SCWH, Box 3901, Florida Atlantic
      University, Boca Raton FL 33431) is open to anyone interested in the
      scholarly study of Civil War history.
