Without the help of valued patrons, members, and advisors over the years, our organization would not have endured these past 25 years. We cannot fully express our gratitude for your assistance, and we hope you will help us continue far into the future.

This year we are celebrating our 30th Anniversary. That’s right: The Roundtable has been a significant forum for open-minded inquiry into the Shakespeare Authorship question for 30 years.

After collaborating with Charles Champlin, Arts Critic for the L.A. Times, and with strong encouragement from Barbara & John Crowley, Ruth & MD Miller, and Richard and Jane Roe, Carole Sue Lipman agreed to form the Roundtable in 1985. And we’re still going strong. Censorship of the authorship question still exists. The struggle is not over, and we’re ready to renew our efforts as a forum and educational outreach for another 30 years if necessary. But we need your suggestions and your support.

The Roundtable is a registered 501C3. You can help us celebrate our 30th Anniversary by making a donation by check or on-line.

As a token of our thanks, every donation of $30 or more will receive our new Shakespeare Authorship Roundtable 30th Anniversary Tote.


It is with profound sadness that we regret to inform our members and friends of the passing of our pre-iminent Roundtable Founder, Barbara Crowley. Her daughter Sylvia Crowley Holmes has graciously asked us to request (in lieu of flowers or other memorial gifts to the family), that you instead send donations made out to:

     Shakespeare Authorship Roundtable
     PO Box 76
     Beverly Hills, CA 90213

This group of scholars, and their important research was very dear to Barbara's heart. She would want to see it thrive in the coming years. We thank you in advance for any contributions you might offer in her honor.
