|Excerpt from The Silver Wedding of the Bear: A Memorial of the Celebration of the Twenty-Fifth Anniversary of the Tavern Club, 15 January 1909
The Twenty-fifth Anniversary of the founding of the Club, or "The Silver Wedding of the Bear" was celebrated on January 15, 1909. There were present over one hundred and twenty men, including former and present, active and non-resident members.
At seven o'clock "Wreathe the Bowl" was sung on the staircase by Sullivan Sargent. This was immediately followed by the ceremony of Passing the Guarded Flame. Howard Walker dressed in a white scholar's gown stood on the stairs, and read from a scroll the following lines by Francis Sturgis, explaining the ritual about to be performed:
And now, good friends, the happy lot is mine
To pass to you in trust this Guarded Flame.
You shall receive this emblem of the Club
Each in the order of his fealty;
So, having held and given back this lamp
Then pass ye onward to the Banquet Hall.
