The International T. S. Eliot Society
A Note on Our Name Change

At its September 2018 meeting, the Board voted to change the name of our society from the T. S. Eliot Society to the International T. S. Eliot Society in order to reflect both our actual membership and our conference venues. More than a quarter of our members hail from outside the United States, drawn in part by our meetings in Britain, France, and Italy. Our roots, like Eliot’s, are in St. Louis, where the Society began as a small, local organization. But we now have more members from Italy than from Missouri, and our new name reflects these changed realities and our aspiration to welcome Eliot admirers from around the world.
