Committee of 100
The Committee of 100 is the premiere level of membership at HistoryMiami Museum. Members of the Committee of 100 provide crucial support and sustainability for exhibitions, collections and education programs.
A Brief History: The Committee of 100 was founded in Miami Beach after the 1926 hurricane to boost morale, advance local philanthropic service in Miami, and encourage social camaraderie and cultural activities. The founding president was Clayton Sedgwick Cooper, publisher of the Miami Tribune. Other prominent members in the Committee’s early history included Harvey S. Firestone, Thomas J. Pancoast, Carl G. Fisher, Mark C. Honeywell and John H. Kellogg.
In 2007, the Committee of 100 came under the auspices of HistoryMiami Museum, becoming the most prestigious membership level that the museum offers. Now often referred to as the C100, the group meets at a select number of private VIP events during the year.
