On February 3, 1903, in a small restaurant in San Francisco, our founders hosted the first meeting of The Commonwealth Club of California. We wish we could commemorate the occasion with you in person with a big piece of birthday cake! Until then, we invite you to celebrate our 119 years of insightful conversation with a little Club trivia.
