Our 150th Anniversary

Celebrating 150 years of arts & letters at the Signet Society

The Signet is turning 150 in 2020! For a century and a half, we've gathered at lunch to talk, to collaborate, to debate, and to befriend. From journalism to theater, from jazz to fashion design, from film to poetry, our members have left Harvard and made tremendous contributions across the creative and literary arts.

Next April, come back together in Cambridge to knock elbows with old friends and new. Our Annual Dinner on April 25th, 2020 will be a celebration of the arts, the writing, and the conversation that connect our community across the generations. We will also have Signet reunions hosted by our grads in cities near and far – stay tuned for more details this fall!

Our 150th Anniversary celebrations, and especially our Annual Dinner, should be accessible to our whole community, from the newly-elected college sophomores to the grads who were with us at our 100th Anniversary. We are so grateful for all the support we receive from you, our members and graduates – the Signet could not be what it is without your generosity. Please help us keep the conversation going for another 150 years by sponsoring this once-in-a-generation Annual Dinner.
