Preserving our past. Building our future.
The Center for Presidential History (CPH) exists to research and advance understanding of the history of the American presidency. The Article II Society is a giving society for loyal supporters who contribute $2,500 or more each year to CPH, helping ensure the work and this organization can continue.
Receive exclusive invitations to a select number of private lectures, meals, and/or intimate discussions with CPH visiting fellows and speakers, and the Center’s staff of scholars too! More than a handshake at a reception, this is an opportunity to truly engage some of the top writers and thinkers on the presidency at work today. Some past highlights include:
Dinner event with Susan Page, Washington Bureau Chief for USA Today and biographer of Barbara Bush and Nancy Pelosi
Lunch with New York Times best-selling author A.J. Baime
Private history & art tour at the Dallas Museum of Art, led by CPH scholars
Obtain advance registration for all public CPH events, and opportunity to pre-reserve your two seats!
Get advance notice and registration for CPH Study Abroad courses and excursions. You may already know about the CPH annual trip to the D-Day beaches. Plans for Gettysburg and Vietnam are in the works!
Be invited to directly engage with CPH students and fellows, all while supporting their education.
Your tax-deductible membership enables the Center to continue these opportunities on the SMU campus and our research into the nation’s past—all done with an eye towards improving our shared future. Most important of all, your support helps support the Center for Presidential History, its research, educational outreach and provide support for our number one priority: our SMU STUDENTS.
