Attached is a column from the pages of a long dead Hollywood trade publication that announced the establishing of an organization for the silver-haired alumni of Hollywood's silent film business:
"Early this summer there came into existence a new organization known as Picture Pioneers, consisting of veterans who have been in the industry 25 years."
"According to the founders, the Picture Pioneers is a club whose members will meet over the luncheon or dinner table two or three times a year, to swap reminiscences and promote good fellowship... Jack Cohn was unanimously elected as permanent house manager, or president of the organization, and an executive committee was appointed composed of Jack Cohn, Marvin Schenck, George Schaefer, Herman Robbins, Harry Buckley, Joe Hornstein, William Brandt, Harry Buxbaum, Leon Netter and Terry Ramsey."
