New-York Historical Society’s History Makers Gala Honoring 
Roger Hertog and David Petraeus Raises $3.1 million 
on December 2, 2013

More than 500 guests were in attendance on Monday, December 2, 2013, as Roger Hertog and General David Petraeus were presented with the New-York Historical Society’s distinguished 2013 History Makers Awards at The Pierre during the annual History Makers Gala. The theme of the evening was Strategic Leadership and Vision. The money raised will benefit the programs of the New-York Historical Society, including major exhibitions and educational programs on American history.  

Commented Dr. Louise Mirrer, 
President and CEO of the New-York Historical Society: “We are pleased to present Roger Hertog with our History Makers Award. Mr. Hertog’s dedication to the power of ideas and the telling of the American story has left its mark on every nook and cranny of our institution. We are grateful that he agreed to accept this honor. We are also pleased to recognize General Petraeus for his groundbreaking work in Iraq, his dynamic approach to counterinsurgency, his advocacy of a comprehensive civil-military approach, and his encouragement of strategies that resolve problems through political processes rather than violence.”

Dr. Mirrer announced the establishment of Roger Hertog-General David Petraeus Lecture in Leadership and an annual New-York Historical Society/City University of New York Internship awarded to a student who exemplifies a commitment to excellence.

Roger Hertog is president of the Hertog Foundation and chairman of the Tikvah Fund.  One of the founding partners of the investment research and management firm Sanford C. Bernstein & Co., which he joined in 1968, Mr. Hertog served as the firm’s president before its merger with Alliance Capital Management in 2000. In 2006 he retired from the successor company, Alliance Bernstein, and is currently vice-chairman emeritus. In 2007 Mr. Hertog was awarded the Medal of the National Endowment for the Humanities in recognition of his philanthropic efforts. In 2010 he received the William E. Simon Prize for Philanthropic Leadership. 

Roger Hertog became a Trustee of the New-York Historical Society in 2003 and served as Chairman of the Board from 2007 to September 2013. He developed the idea of the Chairman’s Council and chaired the planning committee that resulted in the adoption of New-York Historical’s ambitious long-term Strategic Plan. His leadership is reflected in New-York Historical’s $100 million capital campaign and the $70 million renovation of its building, its groundbreaking exhibitions, thought-provoking speaker programs, publications and events. He donated the Constitutional Convention notebooks of John Lansing, Jr., a New York delegate to the 1787 Philadelphia Convention, to the New-York Historical Society’s Patricia D. Klingenstein Library, offering researchers and the public an eyewitness report of the creation of the U.S. Constitution. The Roger and Susan Hertog Charitable Fund, with Jan and Warren Adelson, donated a John Singer Sargent portrait of Mrs. Jacob Wendell to the New-York Historical Society Museum in 2013. Also in 2013, he funded the Roger Hertog Fellowship, a two-year residency aimed at furthering the work of an eminent scholar through research in the New-York Historical Society’s Library and Museum.

General David H. Petraeus (U.S. Army, Retired) is the Chairman of the KKR Global Institute, a Visiting Professor of Public Policy at CUNY’s Macaulay Honors College, a Judge Widney Professor at the University of Southern California, and a member of the advisory boards of several veterans organizations. General Petraeus served 37 years in the U.S. military, including as commander of coalition forces in Iraq and Afghanistan, and as commander of the U.S. Central Command. During his military career, General Petraeus served in Cold War Europe, the United States, Central America, Haiti, Bosnia, Kuwait, Iraq, and Afghanistan. In the decade that followed the 9/11 attacks, he was deployed for nearly 7 years, culminating his career with six straight commands, five of which were in combat. General Petraeus has received numerous U.S. military, State Department, NATO, and United Nations awards and decorations. He also has been decorated by 12 foreign countries. Following retirement from the military in August 2011, he served for 14 months as the Director of the CIA.


About the New-York Historical Society:

Founded in 1804, the New-York Historical Society has a mission to explore the richly layered history of New York City and State and the country, and to serve as a national forum for the discussion of issues surrounding the making and meaning of history.

New York Historical is recognized for engaging the public with deeply researched and far-ranging exhibitions, such as 
Alexander Hamilton: The Man Who Made Modern America; Slavery in New York; Nature and the American Vision: The Hudson River School at the New-York Historical Society; Grant and Lee in War and Peace; Lincoln and New York; The Grateful Dead: Now Playing at the New-York Historical Society; Nueva York; Revolution! The Atlantic World Reborn; and WWII & NYC. Supporting these exhibitions and related education programs is one of the world's greatest collections of historical artifacts, works of American art, and other materials documenting the history of the United States and New York. 

On view through February 23, 2014, New-York Historical is presenting The Armory Show at 100: Modern Art and Revolution, which revisits the famous 1913 New York Armory Show on its 100th anniversary by bringing together over 100 works from the original show.
