Session Details: 

Sutherland notes this session to have taken place at Christy's Restaurant in Framingham, MA. Also, Sutherland notes that the date of the session is unknown, only the month and year are known (April 1951). Losin has inferred that April 21, 1951 at Symphony Hall in Boston, MA is the right date and location but admits that there is room for doubt and disagreement.
