Algonquin Round Table
ALGONQUIN ROUND TABLE
ALGONQUIN ROUND TABLE was a group of journalists, playwrights, actors, and writers who gathered daily at a special table in the Rose Room at the Algonquin Hotel on West Forty-fourth Street in New York City from 1919 to about 1929. Their witticisms and jokes appeared in Franklin P. Adams's column "The Conning Tower" in the New York Tribune, conveying an alluring "insider's" image of metropolitan literary and theatrical life to far-flung readers. Core members included Adams, Robert Benchley, Heywood Broun, Edna Ferber, George S. Kaufman, Harpo Marx, Dorothy Parker, Robert Sherwood, Alexander Woollcott, and Harold Ross, editor of The New Yorker.
