50 Year Members

I was greatly honored to be invited to join the prestigious Explorers Club in 1961. Over the past half century the history and traditions of our organization remain a constant source of personal pride. I look forward to continuing to promote the “Spirit of Exploration”.

Honorary President Don Walsh, Ph.D., MED ’61

Congratulations to our members celebrating their 50th Year Anniversary of Membership. We thank them for their continuing support of The Explorers Club.
