You are cordially invited to become a member of the Supreme Court Historical Society. Founded in 1974, the Society is a non-profit membership organization dedicated to collecting and preserving the history of the Supreme Court of the United States. As a member you'll receive:
- A subscription to the Society's Journal of Supreme Court History featuring articles by noted historians , members of the Supreme Court Bar and sitting and retired Justices.
- Invitations to the Society's many educational programs, including the Leon Silverman Lecture Series, the Frank C. Jones Supreme Court Re-enactments, the National Heritage Lecture, and the Erwin Griswold Prize Lecture.
- Invitations to the Society's elegant black-tie Annual Reception and Dinner, traditionally held in the Court's East and West Conference Rooms and the magnificent Great Hall.
Join at the Contributing Member level or higher, and you'll also receive your own "piece of the rock", a handsome two-inch cube of marble, that was once part of the Court's edifice. Affixed with a gold-tone Seal of the Court, it draws attention on any desk or table. But there's more to joining the Society than what you get. Your support enables the Society to purchase antiques and historical memorabilia, portraits and busts—acquisitions the Court Curator employs in educational displays throughout the building for the benefit of the Court's half million annual visitors. Membership contributions also fund the Society's Summer Institute for Teachers, and other educational programs. Your support also sustains the Journal and the Society's many special topics publications, including our most recent book Courtwatchers. Want to know more?
