The Supreme Court Historical Society is pleased to have as its National Membership Chair, Robert Anello. Mr. Anello was elected at the Society's Annual Meeting on June, 2014 he will remain in that capacity from July 1, 2014 through June 30, 2017.

Mr. Anello manages a network of more than 60 state chairs throughout the nation. Our State Chairs work to acquaint prospective members with the mission of the Society, which is to expand the public awareness of the rich history and heritage of the Supreme Court of the United States. The Society accomplishes this goal through support for and publishing of important historical research projects, such as the Documentary History of the Supreme Court of the U.S. 1789-1800. This detailed examination of the critical formative first decade of the Supreme Court completed an eight-volume comprehensive study in 2007. The Society also provides lectures, educational programs and teacher training about the Supreme Court.

Included among the many benefits of Society membership are:

  • A annual subscription of three yearly issues of the acclaimed Journal of Supreme Court History. This is a collection of articles about the history of the Supreme Court, its members and those persons and issues that have come before the Court over the years.
  • The Quarterly magazine. A member oriented newsletter containing historical features about the Court as well as information on upcoming Society events and programs.
  • Invitations to lectures and educational events such as The Leon Silverman Lecture Series. These multi-part programs focus on a variety of Court related topics, the 2014 lecture series focused on the Supreme Court and the Civil War. The lectures are presented in the Courtroom of the Supreme Court and are followed by a reception with the program participants.
