  The Explorers Club
  The Explorers Club is an international multidisciplinary, professional society dedicated to the advancement of field research and scientific exploration, and the ideal that it is vital to preserve the instinct to explore. Since its inception in 1904 , the Club has served as a meeting point and unifying force for explorers and scientists worldwide. In addition to its headquarters building at 46 East 70th Street in New York, the Club has some 30 regional chapters in the United States and abroad.
Promoting Exploration for 95 Years
  The Explorers Club promotes the scientific exploration of land, sea, air and space by sponsoring, assisting and encouraging research and education in the physical, natural and biological sciences. The Club offers a number of financial grants and awards and offers assistance to members in expedition planning. The Explorers Club actively encourages public interest in exploration and the sciences through its public lectures program, publications, travel program, and other events. The Club also maintains a library and map room to assist those interested and engaged in exploration and scientific research.

The seven founding members included two polar explorers, the curator of birds and mammals at The American Museum of Natural History, an archaeologist, a war correspondent and author, a professor of physics and an ethnologist.
