Officially "the Eton Society", Pop is an elite, self-electing club of prefects, whose members wear checked spongebag trousers and fancy waistcoats. George Llewelyn Davies, the eldest son of Arthur and Sylvia, was elected. More recently, Prince William was a member.
Arthur Clutton-Brock writes in the study aid, Eton (1900), "POP is, in fact, an athletic and social club" with an "undiminished prestige." When first founded, it was more focused on intellectual recruitment than sports. At one time, members were anointed "Literati." The intellectual laurels are now taken by another, less glamorous, set of prefects known as Sixth Form Select.
