Ep. 0113: The Porcellian Club: Harvard’s Skull & Bones?
Think the notorious Skull & Bones is the only secret, elite club at an Ivy League school? Think again. There are actually a bunch of such clubs found at the most elite universities, and the oldest one of its type (to CJ’s knowledge) is actually not the more famous Skull & Bones at Yale; it’s the Porcellian Club at Harvard. Famous members of the Porcellian include Oliver Wendell Holmes (both Sr. & Jr.), Henry Cabot Lodge, Theodore Roosevelt (and his son, T.R. Jr.), and the Winklevoss twins, to name just a few.
Join CJ as he discusses:
- The origins of the Porcellian Club
- What little we know of its practices
- Some of its most famous members.
