The 2008 Social List

by Editorial

WL’s list is ever-changing, and it shifts subtly with each edition. Those who die, move away (or get indicted) come off. So do couples in the process of divorce, although unlike 50 years ago regarding such matters, they usually get reinstated when the dust settles. Former occupants of high office may go off or stay, especially if the reputation they have earned in the community at large during their time of service grants them what might be called “permanent establishment” status.

We are often asked whose names get added. The answer is a bit complex.

While our list is no hidebound Almanach de Gotha or Debrett’s Peerage & Baronetage (whose newcomers are mainly restricted to spouses and scions of royal and noble families), it does contain certain likely suspects. These include successive generations of American political dynasties (Taft, Roosevelt, Eisenhower, Kennedy, Johnson, Bush, et al) who have settled here, plus elements of what local folks like to call the “Cave Dwellers,” i.e., longtime resident clans with names like Lee, Claget and Addison, who, though they may rarely be seen, much less photographed, in public, have continued to contribute to the social and cultural life of the city for a century or more. There is a somewhat connected “old money” set (Rockefeller, Burden, Morgan, various collateral du Ponts, etc.) who reside and support many causes here, but whose origins are rooted in other cities; and a much larger group whose pedigrees – and portfolios – are of more recent vintage. Wealth, political power, business success, and longtime family ties do not, however, guarantee automatic admission, although generous measures of flair, bonhomie, and civic spirit certainly help. As far as philanthropy is concerned, contributing to worthy causes has long been a likely route to social advancement, although mere attendance at what Betty Beale, the longtime Washington social chronicler, once termed “pay-as-you-go society” affairs, provides no guarantee.

Finally, a word on selection. While there is no secrecy-enshrouded Scull and Bonery involved in giving the nod or withholding it, we take great care to listen to an ever evolving group of voluntary, off-the-record arbiters whose advice we respect in such matters, mostly longtime residents and wise observers of the scene. There is no application process or need for letters of recommendation. It is a year-round effort, blatantly arbitrary and non-comprehensive to be sure, and we do our best to get it right.
