Why hey, is that the Harriman of Silesian Steel fame or the Brown in Kellogg, Brown & Root?

Is there any reason that the RTA has an article distinct from Skull and Bones? Remes 02:00, 9 Mar 2005 (UTC)

Certainly the "Brown" is within the same Brown family, if not the same man, through and through. I'll do a little research. I don't think the two articles need to be merged, though. The beauty of the internet is that we can link from one topic to another (like the old Hypercard app). It may be too much to take in having reference after reference on the same page. I like everything segregated so it can be easily structured for study.

I think it is best to leave the articles seperate so future information relating specificly to each can be easily distinguished.

Definitely leave them seperate. They need to be distinguished. - jg

I agree they are seperate entities albeit connected in a manner. They should be kept seperate. I contacted Brown Brothers Harriman & Co with the intention of gaining permission for landing on Deer Island or the possibility of a tour. They denied any knowledge of the RTA.

I'm not sure they should remain separate pages, unless the Russell Trust Association page has other properties or activities to link to. If it's sole purpose is to manage the Hight Street property and Deer Island, then it should be a section on the Skull and Bones page rather than a separate entry. - ph

I agree that this article should be merged with Skull and Bones. A corporate name does not meet the threshold for notability, and it is confusing to have the organizations listed under separate articles. Tax filings (accessible through Guidestar) indicate that the trust does no other business than support Skull and Bones. Nickknack00 (talk) 15:55, 24 June 2014 (UTC)

Biased Language[edit]

What exactly is the "covert activities network" mentioned but not defined in this article? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 65.96.127.232 (talk) 18:53, 2 February 2010 (UTC)
