Seating Arrangements, 1969

Gone is the time when the host chose where people sat — instead, it was all about social standing. "The woman guest of honor is always taken in to dinner by the host and placed on his right. A male guest of honor is seated on the hostess’s right. The lady of next greatest importance sits on the host's left and is taken in to dinner by the gentleman on whose right she sits." Page 167.
