 The Rhodes Scholarships, established by the terms of Cecil Rhodes's seventh will, areknown to everyone. What is not so widely known is that Rhodes in five previous willsleft his fortune to form a secret society, which was to devote itself to the preservation andexpansion of the British Empire. And what does not seem to be known to anyone is thatthis secret society was created by Rhodes and his principal trustee, Lord Milner, andcontinues to exist to this day. To be sure, this secret society is not a childish thing like theKu Klux Klan, and it does not have any secret robes, secret handclasps, or secretpasswords. It does not need any of these, since its members know each other intimately.It probably has no oaths of secrecy nor any formal procedure of initiation. It does,however, exist and holds secret meetings, over which the senior member present presides.At various times since 1891, these meetings have been presided over by Rhodes, LordMilner, Lord Selborne, Sir Patrick Duncan, Field Marshal Jan Smuts, Lord Lothian, andLord Brand. They have been held in all the British Dominions, starting in South Africaabout 1903; in various places in London, chiefly 175 Piccadilly; at various colleges atOxford, chiefly All Souls; and at many English country houses such as Tring Park,Blickling Hall, Cliveden, and others.This society has been known at various times as Milner's Kindergarten, as the RoundTable Group, as the Rhodes crowd, as The Times crowd, as the All Souls group, and asthe Cliveden set. All of these terms are unsatisfactory, for one reason or another, and Ihave chosen to call it the Milner Group. Those persons who have used the other terms, orheard them used, have not generally been aware that all these various terms referred tothe same Group.It is not easy for an outsider to write the history of a secret group of this kind, but,since no insider is going to do it, an outsider must attempt it. It should be done, for thisGroup is, as I shall show, one of the most important historical facts of the twentiethcentury. Indeed, the Group is of such significance that evidence of its existence is nothard to find, if one knows where to look. This evidence I have sought to point out withoutoverly burdening this volume with footnotes and bibliographical references. While suchevidences of scholarship are kept at a minimum, I believe I have given the source of every fact which I mention. Some of these facts came to me from sources which I am notpermitted to name, and I have mentioned them only where I can produce documentaryevidence available to everyone. Nevertheless, it would have been very difficult to writethis book if I had not received a certain amount of assistance of a personal nature frompersons close to the Group. For obvious reasons, I cannot reveal the names of suchpersons, so I have not made reference to any information derived from them unless it wasinformation readily available from other sources.Naturally, it is not possible for an outsider to write about a secret group without fallinginto errors. There are undoubtedly errors in what follows. I have tried to keep these at aminimum by keeping the interpretation at a minimum and allowing the facts to speak forthemselves. This will serve as an excuse for the somewhat excessive use of quotations. Ifeel that there is no doubt at all about my general interpretation. I also feel that there are
