Invention of the acronym WASP[edit]

While E. Digby Baltzell certainly popularized the term WASP, he always denied that he was the inventor of the term [1] —Preceding unsigned comment added by Adelson Velsky Landis (talkcontribs) 05:55, 30 August 2010 (UTC)

Member or guest?[edit]

Under the heading "Life and career", it states this about Baltzell's club memberships: "He chose to be a member of only one, the Franklin Inn Club in Philadelphia, where he was a frequent luncheon guest during the last years of his life." This is oxymoronic; if he was a member, he was not a guest, and vice-versa. Can anyone knowledgeable about Baltzell's club membership(s) make sense of this? Bricology (talk) 04:09, 1 May 2015 (UTC)
