Society and the False Ivy League network. Dating money bags.


Evidence 2:

Her moment of epiphany? Not of course before running out of Yale and Harvard alumni to source through…how terrible.

The most hysterical part of the list is that they aren’t the most “selective, academically rigorous institutions.”

They are institutions that (in JWA’s mind) are more likely to churn out money-bags.

Such calamity and yet such thorough consideration as to what can yield the biggest fish. Or rather biggest money bags…

And as far as I know there have been no relationships or marriages that have come out of IvyPlus – just a couple of outbreaks of herpes and clamydia.

For some reason this reminds all of summer camp amongst coming of age teenagers as opposed to the acclaimed pursuits of the noble class- the pedigree ivy league that Ms Anderson and her alias friend Susan McShane have embroiled themselves in. Sensing my incredulousness Ms Susan McShane suggests that I ought to come down and see for myself:

Leap forward to evidence number 3:



  1. Yes – I am the Susan from the article. You took a couple of emails totally out of context, omitted your own emails egging me on for dirt and then printed a few choice items out of context.

    Yes I graduated from an ivy league school. No I am not a member of the ivy plus society. I don’t even get their emails anymore. I have been to one ivy plus event, and I was dragged to it by another friend.

    Yes – I’ve hung out with Jennifer Wilde Anderson, mostly parties and dinners, but we are not friends. My connection to her is through other friend/s. A couple of close friends happen to be friends with her which is how I know of these stories.

    And despite your distorted use of my email, my friends and I are not anti-semitic. in fact, my really good friend who told me most of these stories about Jennifer Wilde Anderson is Jewish. Which is why we joke about Jennifer Wilde Anderson’s WASPY aspirations.

  2. Christopher: You raise some interesting issues. In a piece entitled Transactional Romance: Matchmakers vs. Madams: Is there Really a Difference? which I wrote back in 2003 (see: http://christopherlondonblog.com/2003/02/08/88764590) I raised questions about whether the ethics of the more legal enterprise (matchmakers) are in fact worse than the ethics of the oldest profession. You see in the oldest profession, assuming that the woman is participating of her own free will and volition and is not the victim of human trafficking, and if she is say represented by a Madam who is not taking an egregious but rather fair cut for arranging the trysts than it is an above board fair market transaction. The problem with “ALL” matchmaking enterprises is that their marketing never matches their offerings. Far too many of even the well regarded matchmakers have a database of ringers (young female models) who will go on dates with rich old guys but they make their fees off of professional women in their 30’s and 40’s and the matchmakers often do not have a quality data base of age appropriate men to meet the demands of people who are paying them. I know because a rather prominent matchmaker in this town used me and gave me several “free dates” with her Jewish female clients who were looking for a guy not named CHRISTopher but you see she had no dudes in her database and she took $10,000 checks from the woman’s family. This story of creating an enterprise to in effect SELF DEAL makes the woman who ran IVY PLUS SOCIETY in effect the BERNIE MADOFF of matchmaking.
