Thanks everyone for the illuminating answers.
Just in case anyone needs it, here is what I could do last weekend
(using some help from an earlier post here):

EvaluateNotebook[notebookAddress_String] :=
 Module[{nb}, nb = NotebookOpen[notebookAddress];
  FrontEndExecute[FrontEndToken["EvaluateNotebook"]];
  NotebookClose[nb];]

EvaluateNotebook::usage =
  "EvaluateNotebook[notebookAddress_String] evaluates the notebook at
\
the notebookAddress." ;

-Ashutosh.
