A Sequitur of Logicians?

Reading over my previous post, I was wondering if a group of scholars can be referred to as a “gaggle”. So I did some research (i.e., I asked google) and happened upon this wiki page, which lists the appropriate collective noun for logicians as “sequitur”, and attributes this to Bertrand Russell. Anyone got a reference for this? (It doesn’t list a special collective noun for scholars, though–maybe “a school of scholars” would be appropriate?)

UPDATE: The wikipedia page for Quine has him saying it, but maybe he got it from Russell?
