Lemony Snicket:
The Unauthorized Autobiography

VFD Building Meeting Transcript (UA.33-51)

  • (UA.33) This transcipt describes the April Building Commitee meeting, which was held just before neophyte exams and before moving.
    Such meetings begin with the banging of a gavel by M.
    People in attendence (eleven total):
  • J (Jacques Snicket, UA.44)
  • L (Lemony Snicket, UA.35, 44)
  • M (leader)
  • R (Vice Chancellor, UA.34)
  • R (nine years old, but not youngest member; UA.38)
  • M
  • L
  • K
  • D (Daniel Handler, UA.35)
  • S
  • J (secretary)

  • (UA.41) S made a report on Prufrock Prep which showed a correlation between lack of sleep and poor work in young people. (Olaf's use of this idea in The Austere Academy reinforces the idea that O found later in this transcript is Olaf.)
    This S may be Sally Sebald, but there's no specific evidence to back this up.

  • (UA.43) Since the time when J (who knew L before joining VFD, UA.44. Digression: As J does not state that he knew K before joining VFD, one assumes that the K at this meeting is not his sister.) joined the organization, they have had to flee from seven headquarters at the time of this meeting.

  • (UA.45) E and O (O prefers to be called T) are unwelcome at the Building Committee meeting. They hid behind the puppet theatre. These two are most likely Esme and Olaf, respectively.

  • (UA.47) The second half of the transcript is hidden between pages 302 and 303 of Ivan Lachrymose: Lake Explorer, hidden under someone's bed. This most likely refers to the bed of Josephine Anwhistle, which fell into Lake Lachrymose during Hurricane Herman in The Wide Window.
