Who sat at the famous Algonquin Round Table?

The wits who traded barbs at New York’s Algonquin Hotel in the 1920s included:

Franklin P. Adams, Robert Benchley, Heywood Broun, Frank Case, Edna Ferber, George S. Kaufman, Harpo Marx, Neysa McMein, Dorothy Parker, Harold Ross, Robert E. Sherwood, and Alexander Woollcott.

The Algonquin Hotel still stands. It was recently sold to a group of Japanese investors.
