The Institute of Actuaries was founded in 1848 and contributed to the study of the theory of life contingencies, enabling an exchange of ideas between its members and bringing about a greater consistency in their methods. Its aims were advanced by the publication of its Journal, originally called The Assurance Magazine, which first appeared in September 1850. The magazine was founded by two well-known actuaries, Charles Jellicoe and Samuel Brown, and was adopted as the organ of the Institute of Actuaries in 1852. Jellicoe continued as its editor until 1867 when he was succeeded by T. B. Sprague. Good .

(MUNCH, CHARLES; KRIPS, ALFRED; MAZZEO, ROSARIO; CECCI, JESSE; SILVERSTEIN, JOSEPH; ET AL).
[Boston Symphony Orchestra]: Autographs of over 45 Eminent Guests & Musicians Attending a Dinner Party in Honor of the Boston Symphony Orchestra Hosted by Charles Douglas Jackson and His Wife Grace Bristed Jackson at the Dakota in New York City . Included Among the Autographs Are Those of Conductor Charles Munch, Clarinetist Rosario Mazzeo, Violinists Alfred Krips, Jesse Ceci and Joseph Silverstein.
New York, NY: The Dakota 1956. 1956. - Seven pages with over forty-five autographs penned on both sides of 4 gilt-edged, cream-colored sheets measuring 10-3/4 inches high by 8-3/4 inches wide, removed from the guest book of Grace Bristed Jackson and C. D. Jackson. Dated "Friday Dec. 14th 1956", the signatures are identified along the top as those of guests present at a "Supper Party for Boston Symphony Orchestra" held at the Dakota in New York City. Most, if not all, of the guests have penned inscriptions expressing their appreciation to the Jackson's above their signatures. There is a short tear to the top edge of the first sheet, not affecting any of the signatures. Near fine. The dinner was held to celebrate the orchestra's historic tour in September to the Soviet Union and would culminate in an 8:30 PM concert by the BSO at the Brooklyn Academy of Music. Charles Douglas Jackson [known as "C.D."] and his wife Grace Bristed Jackson hosted parties and events at their apartment in the Dakota. Jackson worked on and off at Time magazine in an administrative capacity for many years and was made vice president of Time, Inc. in 1940. He was periodically sent on various diplomatic missions by Eisenhower. He also found time to serve on the boards of several organizations, including the Boston Symphony Orchestra, the Free Europe Committee and Lincoln Center for the Performing Arts. The signatures in the order in which they appear on the sheets are those of: The Boston Symphony Orchestra's director Charles Munch (1891-1968) who has additionally penned "avec tant d'emotion et une si grande reconnaissance". The Alsacian symphonic conductor and violinist Charles Munch was highly regarded for his mastery of French orchestral music. He was director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra from 1949 through 1962 and, under his leadership, the BSO was the first U.S. Orchestra to perform in the Soviet Union in September of 1956. Margo Miller who wrote articles on the BSO's Russia tour for the Berskshire Eagle has penned the following "Better than Leningrad-Moscow" above her autograph. George E. Judd, manager of the BSO from 1935-1954. Tod & Helen Perry. Tod Perry managed the BSO from 1954-1973 and was executive director from 1973-1978. Tod penned the following above his signature: "There are two people without WHOM the Russia trip would not have been the same - Grace & CD - Bless them both!!!: and his wife Helen penned "Since I didn't reach Leningrad, you have given the same fabulous effect. With loving thanks". Lillian Judd. The American clarinetist Rosario Mazzeo (1911-1997) has penned "For our Gracie, The best trooper of all!" signed "Rosario Mazzeo". The designer of the Mazzeo system of clarinet keywork, Mazzeo played for the Boston Symphony Orchestra from 1933 to 1966 and was also the orchestra's personnel manager for much of that period. He chaired the woodwind department at the New England Conservatory of Music. Mazzeo's wife, the harpsichordist Katie Clare Mazzeo has additionally penned the following inscription above her signature: "To Gracie - who took such good care of R.M. in USSR!" George E. Moleux, principal double bass player. Leonard G. Moss, a violinist for 43 years with the BSO. The orchestra's first harpist Bernard Zighera and what appears to be the signature of his wife Georgette. Horn player Harry Shapiro. Leonard S. Burkat, Munch's assistant who wrote the program notes for nearly 15,000 works. Principal trombonist William Gibson. Violinist Jesse Ceci (1924-2006) who, as a child prodigy, began his studies with a full scholarship to the Curtis Institute of Music at 8 years old. He went on to study at Juilliard, the Paris Conservatory, and L'Ecole Normale de Musique which he attended on a Fulbright scholarship. Ceci went on to debut at Alice Tully Hall in NYC and performed under most of the major conductors. He gave numerous benefit performances in support of major causes including the Colorado AIDS Project and "Afghan Ed" which helped young Afghan girls return to school after having been oppressed by the Taliban. The following inscription is signed by a guest who has signed his name in Cyrillic letters: "Many thanks for the chandeliers, champagne & memories of happy (?) days in Russia - not to mention Helsinki & Prague". Viola player Earl Hedberg. First chair viola player Vincent Mauricci Violinist Herman Silberman. Violinist Gottfried J. Wilfinger. Louis Speyer, who played the English horn for the BSO from 1918-1964. Violinist Stanley Benson. Violinist Joseph Leibovici. [?] de V. [?].

Violinist Alfred Schneider. Principal Second Violinist William Marshall. Cellist Mischa Nieland. Violinist Samuel Diamond. American violinist and conductor Joseph "Joey" Silverstein (1932-2015). Silverstein first studied from his father and subsequently Efrem Zimbalist, D.C. Dounis, William Primrose, Josef Gingold and Mischa Mischakoff. He joined the BSO as second violinist in 1955 and was the youngest musician in the orchestra. He was appointed concertmaster in 1962 and assistant conductor in 1971.

Toronto, Ontario: The Workers' Publishing Association, 1928. 1928. - Octavo, 9-1/2 inches high by 6-1/2 inches wide. Printed self-wraps. This periodical was once bound in with a larger collection of pamphlets as attested by remnants of paper along the spine and stab marks along the inner edge. The front and lower edges of the front cover are darkened and there is a small chip to the bottom of the rear cover. 48 pages, including the front cover. Good. A RARE early Canadian Communist publication edited by Maurice Spector. This periodical includes the following essays & articles: "Canada, the Empire and the War Danger" by Maurice Spector, "Our Divided Trade Union Movement" by Tim Buck, "What of the Labour Party" by Jack Macdonald, "The Farmers in 'Prosperity'" by J.M. Clarke, and "The Metal Miners of Northern Ontario" by A. Vaara. Also included is the first English translation of Joseph Stalin's "Lenin - The Mountain Eagle", which had been omitted from the English translation of Stalin's book: "This incisive characterization of Lenin, the fourth anniversary of whose death is being commemorated by class-conscious workers the world over, is a chapter from Stalin's 'Theory and Practice of Leninism,' accidentally omitted from the English translation. It is published for the first time in this country". The editor and author of one of the articles, Maurice Spector (1898-1968) was Chairman of the Communist Party of Canada. He also edited the party's newspaper "The Worker" through most of the 1920's. Spector was an early follower of Leon Trotsky after his split from the Communist International. One of the leaders of the Stalin-era Communist International, Tim Buck (1891-1973) was general secretary of the Communist Party of Canada from 1929 to 1962. The coal miner, union leader, and farmer James Bryson McLachlan (1869-1937) was also a journalist and contributed an article on the "Wage Scale Convention of District 26". Scottish-born Jack MacDonald (b. 1888) was a member of the British Socialist Party and of the Scottish Social Democratic Federation. Immigrating to Toronto, he was a founding member of the Communist Party of Canada. Ironically, MacDonald supported the expulsion of Maurice Spector for Trotskyism in 1928 and was subsequently expelled himself after being accused of being a Lovestoneite (a supporter of Bukharin's Right Opposition). He reconciled with Spector and, in 1932, joined the Toronto branch of the International Left Opposition (Trotskyist) Canada. J.M. Clarke was editor of "The Furrow", the Communist Party's farmer's magazine. Aaro Vaara was arrested for sedition in 1927 after writing dismissively about the Royal Family in a Finnish-language newspaper published in Sudbury, Ontario. At the time, Sudbury was the center of nickel mining and smelting and is said to have resembled nothing less than Dante's Inferno. Mostly French Canadians and immigrant labor (particularly from Finland) worked the mines and few spoke English. Good .
