New membership club: George Caleb Bingham Annual Giving Society
One of the nineteeth century’s best-known artists, George Caleb Bingham, preserved on canvas some of our most iconic images of commerce and politics during the turbulent period of westward expansion and the Civil War. The Historical Society is proud to have in its collection several of his most important works, including masterpieces General Order No. 11 and Watching the Cargo.
Not only was Bingham an eminently talented artist, he was also a man of high ideals. Therefore, it is fitting that the Society name its new annual giving club at the $1,000 level in his honor—the George Caleb Bingham Society—to help uphold our high ideals in preserving our great heritage. Bingham Society members will enhance our ability to collect, publish, and preserve material that is vital to the study of the history of Missouri and the settling of the West. Please consider this highest level of membership.
All members receive the Missouri Historical Review quarterly scholarly journal, the Missouri Times quarterly newsletter, a discount on publications and Benton-Bingham Gift Shop items, a reduced fee on research assistance and workshops, and an invitation to the Annual Meeting. To learn about increased benefits at higher levels of membership visit our Web site or telephone (573) 882-7083.
