This information is taken from the annual syllabus issued to members.  It is clear that on occasions there has been a change of programme.  Where this is known, the list has been amended to reflect that.

Stuart MAXWELL, on 13 January 1955, was the first to address the Society twice;  Isobel W HUTCHISON, on 14 December 1961, the first to speak three times.  Hutchison, Dorothy N MARSHALL and Alastair HENDY  have each addressed the Society five times.
