Ladislas Faragó (1906 – 1980) was a military historian and journalist who published a number of best-selling books on history and espionage, especially concerning the World War II era.. He was the author of "Patton: Ordeal and Triumph", the acclaimed biography of George Patton, that formed the basis for the film Patton and wrote "The Broken Seal", one of the books that formed the basis for the movie Tora! Tora! Tora!..

He moved to New York and took over the management of the American branch of his father's business, the Franz Hanfstaengl Fine Arts Publishing House..Among his circle of acquaintances were the newspaper baron William Randolph Hearst, author Djuna Barnes (to whom he was engaged), and actor Charlie Chaplin..The Hasty Pudding Club was originally established to bring together undergraduates in friendship, conversation, and camaraderie..It was founded on September 1, 1795 by Horace Binney, who was then 15, by calling together a meeting of 21 juniors in the room of Nymphas Hatch..The current clubhouse contains multiple rooms with specific purposes.. Among these rooms is "The Arena", which is a room with no windows or openings to the outside world... Ministry of Love was the really frightening one.. There were no windows in it at all... It was a place impossible to enter except on official business...
