Dear Friend of Harvard,

What is the Harvard Club of the North Shore? We're one of the oldest Harvard Clubs in the country. We organize interesting events, host speakers, and support the College’s applicant interview process. We're not a fundraising organization for Harvard or for ourselves.

• Our events enable us to explore together the beautiful towns, historic sites, museums, and other attractions on Boston's North Shore. They've included world-class music performances at Rockport's Shalin Liu Center, polo at Myopia, and schooner sails out of Gloucester. 

• Our speaker series has brought Congressmen Seth Moulton and Barney Frank, Senators Ed Markey and Scott Brown, eminent physicians, and prominent researchers to Salem’s beautiful and historic Hawthorne Hotel.

Membership is open to alumni of all Harvard Schools, current and former staff, and parents of Harvard students. We range in age from 18 to at least 97.  Annual dues for 2016/17 are $25, a terrific value. Events are priced to cover our costs only. Your membership helps us sustain and expand our wide and varied range of activities and opportunities. 

Our next event will be a Victory Over Dartmouth tailgate gathering on Saturday, October 28.  We expect that our 2017/18 speaker series will include a return visit by Congressman Moulton, a talk by Massachusetts Attorney General Maura Healey, or very possibly both.  We’re also planning a January docent led visit to Peabody Essex Museum’s Georgia O’Keefe exhibit.

For only $25 why not give membership a try.  You’ll very probably run across old friends at our meetings, and are almost guaranteed to make new ones, all the while exploring with us the treasures of our North Shore area.  To learn more about the club, please visit our website You'll find a listing of some of our recent events including tours of North Shore historic and cultural sites, talks by local authors, and topical speakers on important political, medical and other contemporary issues.  

PS. If you have any questions, email me at or call me at 781-346-1363.
