Morning Forum was founded in 1950 with the aim of providing general cultural and intellectual stimulation through the giving and receiving of information with an open-minded and tolerant attitude.
Membership increased from 49 in 1950 to 400 by 1956 and has remained at its limit for many years. Morning Forum’s guest speakers have included prominent figures in multiple fields, from famed anthropologist Margaret Mead to feminist Gloria Steinem and former U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.
Membership is open to the public and seats are currently available.
