The Presidents Club is one of the most exclusive clubs in the world, comprised of only U.S. Presidents. It was founded in January 1953 by President Herbert Hoover. At the time of it’s creation, Hoover was at President Eisenhower’s inauguration. Hoover approached President Truman at the inaugural event and suggested they form a club of all the living U.S. presidents. Truman said yes, and from there, as the saying goes, the rest was history. Since then, all of the presidents have been apart of the club.
