Old Boys' Clubs

Jolee Edmondson
From the Print Edition:
Wayne Gretzky, Mar/Apr 97

(continued from page 3)

In the end, Buck's and its brothers might be consigned to the relic heap, cast aside by a public grown altogether weary of social stratification. Captain Murison is not optimistic. "I think that by the midpoint of the next century there'll be fewer clubs than there are now," he says.

But extinction seems unlikely. Remember what Churchill, in the face of doom, proclaimed to his countrymen. If he was right--if there will always be an England--then there will always be gentlemen's clubs.

Jolee Edmondson is a freelance writer based in Savannah, Georgia.
