Established in 1903 by San Francisco Chronicle editorial writer Edward F. Adams, The Commonwealth Club has proudly featured lectures and speeches from some major historical figures. Teddy Roosevelt, Martin Luther King Jr., Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan have given monumental speeches here. Come see some of the most fascinating figures in history let their opinions fly. The Club is a nonpartisan and nonprofit organization with an educational mission. With offices in San Francisco and San Jose, events are held in both cities and occasionally in the North and East Bay. Membership to the club offers free and discounted rates on the events as well as other advantages, and non-members can enjoy these events at a slightly higher rate. Visit the website to download free podcasts, but if you are in town, a visit to The Club can be an educational and extremely worthwhile outing.
