* Provided for in Club Bylaws, the current United States Ambassador to Sweden can be nominated as Honorary President by the Board of Directors. This tradition is based on strong and productive relationships between groups and U.S. representatives meeting in Sweden documented as early as Consul Charles Leas in 1862.


The Club’s founding on April 3, 1905, provides a link to the first United States Ambassador to Sweden, Benjamin Franklin, who was the U.S. signatory to the Treaty of Amity and Commerce Between the United States and Sweden on April 3, 1783.
