Appendix MONITORING THE ELITE'S PUBLIC FACES
Go right to the primary sources. Contact the several of these organizations and begin to examine what they say publicly about themselves. Then, if you become seriously interested, you should take time to monitor the public activities and published plans of one or more of them. Since they have gone to the expense of creating a public image, we should at least pay attention to this public side of their activities. All it takes is a letter to them (preferably typed, single spaced, return address in upper right-hand side) asking to receive a list of their various materials.
Order a copy of the Annual Report of the Council on Foreign Relations. Address your request to:

Outside the United States, one of the most important organizations is the Royal Institute of International Affairs. Prof. Quigley believed that it was this organization which more or less served as the original model of the C.F.R. This organization is sometimes known as Chatham House, the building in which it is housed. There is a sister organization in each of the British Commonwealth nations.
