The attendee list of Bilderberg is still pretty much the only thing that is not a closely guarded secret, as 120 of the world's richest and most powerful people meet behind closed doors, this time at the Suvretta House hotel in
Switzerland, a venue which not only boasts a "fairytale castle" design, but also its own "Teddy World."I am still trying to find out who owns the hotel:http://www.suvrettahouse.ch/upload_document/19/Geschichte%20englisch.pdfHOTEL SUVRETTA HOUSEhttp://www.suvrettahouse.ch/en/unser_haus/unser_haus_in_kurze.aspxSuvretta House is currently closed.
We are looking forward to welcoming our guests between June 25 until September 4, 2011.
Our hotel is managed by Helen and Vic Jacob, who personally make sure that the wishes of even the most demanding guests are fulfilled.http://pages.unibas.ch/shine/swisstour20.htmlAnton Sebastian Bon (1854.1915) and Major Goldman build the Suvretta House hotel in St. Moritz.http://www.suvrettahouse.ch/upload_document/19/Geschichte%20englisch.pdf
An establishment with a history, and one that made history, too. A legendary history, beginning in 1912. Hotel pioneer Anton Sebastian Bon transformed his vision into reality, and had his dream built on the Plateau Chasellas
. Two kilometres away from St. Moritz, far removed from the touristic commotion of the town.
The hospitable house in the mountains soon developed into one of the leading establishments of the world.Although Anton Bon was approaching 60 when Suvretta House was opened
, he was by no means ready for retirement. On the contrary. Dynamic and full of ideas, he created a fantastic world, an achievement rarely matched anywhere else in the world. Trained in the hotel business, and a veteran of many a renowned European establishment, his goal was independence, to be exact his own first-class hotel. Initially he and his wife Marie took out a lease on the hotels Bodenhaus and Post in Splügen. They then purchased the Rigi First hotel, and subsequently the Villa Pfyffer in Vitznau, which was to become the Park Hotel. But the landmark of his career as a hotel owner was to be the creation of Suvretta House.
Architect Karl Koller drew up the plans and the foundation was laid on April 22nd, 1911. Work proceeded at an unprecedented pace, with 400 workmen working from dawn to dusk. By December of the same year the hotel was ready for the interior outfitting work to commence. A truly magnificent moment!http://www.formspring.me/Eringer/q/201430465477901288
Bilderberg gathering at:Hotel Suvretta House, a property owned by the (Monk St. Clair) family of South African Major Charles Sydney Goldman (1868–1958), invested as a Member, Order of the British Empire, lived at Sydney Lodge, Hamble, Hampshire...Following the artist's death, the painting in its frame with Latin inscription passed to a neighbour of Burne-Jones's, whose descendants, John and Penryn Monck, sold the work at auction at Christie's on April 26, 1963 where it was bought by Luis A. Ferré, a politician and founder of the Ponce Museum of Art who would later become Governor of Puerto Rico. Burne-Jones was out of fashion at this time so its export was allowed despite some objections. http://www.bonhams.com/cgi-bin/public.sh/pubweb/publicSite.r?sContinent=EUR&Screen=Headlinedetails&iheadlineno=2170
...South African-born Major Charles Sydney Goldman M.B.E. (b.1868, MP for Falmouth and Penryn 1910 - 18) was a close friend and admirer of Burne-Jones, and the owner of his magnum opus The Sleep of Arthur in Avalon, a vast romantic scene depicting the last scene from the legend ‘Morte d’Arthur,’ which now hangs in the Museo d’Art, Ponce, Puerto Rico. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Sydney_Goldman
Charles Sydney Goldman (1868 – 7 April 1958) was a British businessman, author, and journalist who served as a Member of Parliament (MP) from 1910 until 1918.
Born in Cape Colony, Goldman was a uitlander who spent much of his life in the Transvaal. As a young man he built up a fortune in mining, using some of the profits to purchase an extensive estate known as Schoongezicht in the Middelburg District
. During the Second Boer War, Goldman was a war correspondent for The Standard. Initially attached to Sir Redvers Buller's relief force, he traveled with them as far as Ladysmith after which he transferred to the cavalry advancing north in order to report on their endeavors. These experiences served as the foundation for Goldman's subsequent book With General French and the Cavalry in South Africa.http://www.superstock.com/stock-photos-images/1895-22207

Angeli Laudantes was commissioned by Goldman in 1898 shortly before his marriage to the Hon Agnes Mary Peel, granddaughter of the founder of the British Police Force, the Rt. Hon Sir Robert Peel.
Clearly something of a character, he was sketched by Spy for Vanity Fair in 1904.
From 1910-18, Charles Sydney Goldman served as M.P. for Falmouth and Penryn. He spent most of his life in the Transvaal and developed a particular interest in South and East African mining and had an extensive estate known as Schoongezicht in the Middelburg District.
There he became a great friend of Cecil Rhodes.
In 1919 he purchased the Nicola Ranch and Town site in British Columbia which grew to some 300,000 acres
In England Goldman lived at Trefusis House, Falmouth until about 1929, moving to the Jacobean mansion at Yaverland Manor by 1946.http://www.flickr.com/photos/rolyh/5148300410/ Yaverland Manor

so they would have been there when you saw the fig tree! We still live on the Island and it does feel like time stands still in a good way. I would love to have seen the old railway network I bet that was marvellous.Goldman changes his name to Monck:http://thepeerage.com/p27320.htm

This island home was mentioned in the Domesday Book, transformed into Jacobean splendour in the 17th century and lovingly restored in modern times. Now a piece of living history is for sale. Mary Wilson reports
Wednesday, 8 June 2005Yaverland Manor
, on the south-east coast - a beautiful, Grade I-listed house, said to be one of the finest examples of a 17th-century manor house in southern England. Its history goes back to Norman times, but it was transformed in 1620 by Jermyn Richards, a local brewer, into the fine Jacobean manor it still is today.
Over the massive fireplace in the 40ft-long, stone-flagged Great Hall is a wonderful mural painted in 1840 by one previous owner, one of the Hamond-Graeme family, depicting the coats of arms of owners up to his time. "This room is the heart of the manor," says Rory Monck, who is reluctantly selling the house on behalf of his mother, the Hon Mrs Sheila Monck, who is in a nursing home."My parents bought it just before the Second World War and farmed here successfully until my father died in 1987," he says. "They restored it beautifully, rewiring, replumbing and modernising, while retaining all the medieval character."
They also joined up the former Brew House to the main house, creating a games room and utility room with self-contained two-bedroom flat over.
After Rory's father died, the land was rented out, but the farmer gave it up two years ago, as he could no longer make money out of it. "You have to diversify to make it work nowadays," says Rory
. "Perhaps the farm buildings, some of which are modern, some listed, could be a successful equestrian enterprise for someone."
The price of Yaverland Manor - £2.5m for house with garden, farm buildings, paddocks and nearly nine acres - could buy you a three-bedroom penthouse in central London. Or, the price increases to £3.55m for the whole estate which extends to 545 acres.http://www.voltairenet.org/IMG/pdf/Quigley_Anglo_American_Establishment.pdfThe Anglo-American Establishment By Carroll Quigley
Beyond the academic field, the Milner Group
engaged in journalistic activities that sought to influence public opinion in directions which the Group desired. One of the earliest examples of this, and one of the few occasions on which the Group appeared as a group in the public eye, was in 1905, the year in which Milner returned from Africa. At that time the Group published a volume, The Empire and the Century, consisting of fifty articles on various aspects of the imperial problem. The majority of these articles were written by members of the Milner Group
, in spite of the fact that so many of the most important members were still in Africa with Lord Selborne. The volume was issued under the general editorship of Charles S. Goldman, a friend of John Buchan and author of With General French and the Cavalry in South Africa.Cecil Rhodes in one of his wills in 1877 left his vast fortune to Lord Nathan Rothschild as trustee to set up the Rhodes Scholarship Program at Oxford to indoctrinate promising young graduates
for the purpose, and also establish a secret society [Royal Institute of International Affairs RIIA, which branched into the Round Table, the Bilderbergers, the CFR, the Trilateral, etc -- Ed] for leading business and banking leaders around the World who would work for the City to bring in their Socialist World government. Rothschild appointed Lord Alfred Milner to implement the plan.
