The Corbett Report


Carroll Quigley (November 9, 1910 – January 3, 1977) was an American historian and theorist of the evolution of civilizations.

In 1966, Quigley published a one-volume history of the twentieth century entitled Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World in Our Time.”

At several points in this book, the history of the Milner group is discussed. Moreover, Quigley states that he has recently been in direct contact with this organization.  According to Quigley, the leaders of this group were Cecil Rhodes and Alfred Milner from 1891 until Rhodes’ death in 1902, Milner alone until his own death in 1925, Lionel Curtis from 1925 to 1955, Robert H. (Baron) Brand from 1955 to 1963, and Adam D. Marris from 1963 until the time Quigley wrote his book.

This organization also functioned through certain loosely affiliated “front groups”, including the Royal Institute of International Affairs, the Institute of Pacific Relations, and the Council on Foreign Relations.

In addition, other secret societies are briefly discussed in Tragedy and Hope, including a consortium of the leaders of the central banks of several countries, who formed the Bank for International Settlements with the intent to “create a world system of financial control in private hands able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole.”

Former FBI Agent W. Cleon Skousen’s book “The Naked Capitalist” first published in 1970 is described by the author as: A Review and Commentary on Dr. Carroll Quigley’s (1966) ” Tragedy and Hope: A History of the World In Our Time.”


Professor Carroll Quigley writes of the secret society founded by Cecil Rhodes in “The Anglo-American Establishment” which warns that No country that values its safety should allow what the Milner Group accomplished that is, a small number of men would be able to wield such power in administration and politics, [and] should be given almost complete control over the publication of documents relating to their actions..
