1st International Congress

Photograph of Catalan Centre members seated at a table during the 1st PEN International Congress, London, 1-3 May 1923. This inaugural dinner of PEN International (known at the time as the International PEN) and the earliest established Centres took place in London on 1 May 1923, as a celebration of the organisation’s growing global membership. Pompeu Fabra, president of the Catalan Centre (1923-24; 1934-39), can be seen seated on the end right of the table in the forefront of the photograph, facing the camera. Josep Maria Millàs-Raurell, co-founder of the Catalan Centre, can be seen seated to the opposite left of Fabra, turning to the camera. Just in shot, with the back of her dress visible on the far right of the picture, is Catharine Amy Dawson Scott, founder of PEN.
