The June 1983 Cercle meeting was held in Bonn, West Germany.


The guest list for this was discovered amongst the papers of Monique Garnier-Lançon at Stanford University, and published online in 2011. It is unknown whether or not the list is complete, and it is made up of two components, one in German, one in English - with somewhat differing names.[1]


German guest #8 has a single name 'Schmidthuber' and a designation 'Minister of State of Bavaria'. This may be a reference to Peter Schmidhuber who was in the private office of Franz Josef Strauss, or this may be an alias of Strauss himself, who was indeed Minister President of Bavaria and was a regular of Le Cercle.
