Dr. Henry Kissinger, a Nobel Peace Prize winner, served as Secretary of State and US National Security Advisor under Richard Nixon and Gerald Ford in the 1970s. His diplomatic relations during his years in office with the Soviet Union, China and Vietnam remain important historical moments to be studied and remembered. Kissinger currently serves as a member of the Defense Policy Board and is the Chairman of Kissinger Associates, an international consulting firm.


James Chanos, a New York City based hedge-fund manager, is known for his innovate short-selling investment strategy and talent for finding overvalued stock. He was one of the first people to identify the overstating of Enron’s earnings in late 2000, and was very successful throughout the next year as he short sold their stock based on his early knowledge of problematic Enron corporation, an important event in American economic history. His celebrated short-sale of Enron shares was dubbed by Barron’s as “the market call of the decade, if not the past fifty years.” Chanos is currently the managing Partner of Kynikos Associates LP.

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; and Nueva York. 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.
