Conflict in dates?[edit]

Ok, I know I'm missing something. F.D.R. was President from 1933-1945, right? So, didn't Brain Trust first help President Herbert Hoover? or is this an unimportant detail that doesn't matter?--ViolinGirl 20:34, 5 November 2005 (UTC)

No it was FDR's informal advisory group of intellectuals. RJensen Rjensen 00:59, 12 November 2005 (UTC)

is it still a stub???[edit]

yes or no? Behind the veil

Frances Perkins[edit]

Why is Frances Perkins not listed as a member of the "Brain Trust"? How could she be omitted? She was a close advisor to FDR in NY while he was Gov., well before his presidency and continued to advise him through all twelve yrs. of his administration. One could easily argue with success that she was one of the earliest, longest and most influential "Brain Trust" advisors. Rather shocking that she was overlooked. your history! —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 02:54, 20 March 2010 (UTC)

Welcome to Wikipedia. Feel free to add her. If others feel she shouldn't be on the list then they will revert and then you can discuss it with them. On the other hand, if others feel she should be on the list then she will stay there. Butwhatdoiknow (talk) 01:46, 22 March 2010 (UTC)


Unless "Brain Trust" is the name of a movie or something, this article should be named "Brain trust" (lower case). —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 21:34, 24 October 2010 (UTC)
