Background

The first Mid Atlantic Club was founded in London in 1971 as a result of initiatives by US Diplomat James R. Huntley and Heinz Walter Lessing O.B.E., later joined by Ben Read (the first Director of the Woodrow Wilson Center for Scholars) and Thomas Hughes (president of the Carnegie Endowment). Following two years of preparation work by Ministerialrat Dr Friedhelm Krüger-Sprengel, the first MAC in Germany was founded in Bonn in June 1977. (Opens internal link in current windowHistory)

The Jubilee will be marked by a series of events, meetings and talks, providing attendees with opportunities to look back over the momentous changes of the past 40 years as well as to consider the constructive role the Mid Atlantic Clubs around the world can continue to play in promoting dialogue, understanding and cooperation in, as ever, challenging times.

Also to mark the occasion, new edition of the book about the Mid Atlantic Clubs is being published and includes new content from a number of high profile contributors.
