From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia


Williams Club is a club for alumni of Williams College. The Williams Club was founded in 1913, by Williams alumni in New York City as a place to socialise. The club was originally located at 291 Madison Avenue in a building donated by Mary Clark Thompson, wife of Williams alumnus Frederick Ferris Thompson. In 1921, the club moved to its current location at 24 East 39th Street in Manhattan. In 1988, the Williams Club made a full scale-renovation.

It is open to members, their guests and members of affiliate clubs as a hotel and restaurant, and operates as a meeting space for Williams alumni living in and visiting the city. It is also the headquarters for the Williams@NY program, accommodating Williams college students and the director of the program, Professor Robert Jackall.

The club also hosts a number of events for members throughout the year, including lectures, readings, concerts, barbecues, networking events and theatre outings.

Although the club is primarily made up of Williams alumni, membership categories also include Affiliate Membership and Associate Membership. Affiliate Membership is available to graduates, faculty members or senior administrators of 54 institutions, many of which are small liberal arts colleges such as Williams itself. Associate Membership is available to individuals with a BA from an accredited school and the sponsorship of a current member.

The Williams Club is centrally located in midtown Manhattan near Grand Central Terminal, the Empire State Building and within a 5 minute walk to Times Square. It offers hotel service, dining and a home-away-from-home in New York City.
