Administrative history

Founded in 1863 by a group of concerned citizens to help preserve the Union, the Union League Club of New York built a record of distinguished service to our country. Members of the Union League Club were instrumental in establishing The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 1870 and also played an essential role in the founding of the American Red Cross. It helped erect the Statue of Liberty in New York Harbor and the Lincoln Monument in Union Square.

Many prominent civic, state and national leaders have enjoyed the fellowship of the ULC. Theodore Roosevelt managed his early political career from the Club’s chambers. J. Pierpont Morgan was a regular, along with John Jay, William Cullen Bryant, Chester A. Arthur, and Thomas Nast. Fifteen Presidents, seven Senators, many Congressmen, diplomats, cabinet members, and scores of chief executive officers of major corporations have been members of the Club during the past hundred and forty years and have participated in its programs.
