This intimate group tour will be led by Gilbert Klein, bio below. The National Press Club is a professional and social club for working journalists and communications professionals that has been a Washington institution for more than a century. Founded in 1908 as a haven for reporters in the nation’s capital to relax, enjoy a drink and play cards, the National Press Club has flourished to become the World’s Leading Professional Organization for Journalists™, one of the most popular event venues in the nation's capital for hosting professional and social events, and a full-service multimedia production facility to help communicate news and information to a global audience. Through its doors have come presidents, premiers, kings and queens, Cabinet secretaries, senators and House members, movie stars and sports heroes, titans of business and finance – a who’s who of the 20th and the 21st centuries - eager to share their views on current events with the media and the public.

Gil Klein is Resident Director of the University of Oklahoma’s Washington Journalism Program. He is the author of two histories — “Trouble in Lafayette Square: Assassination, Protest and Murder at the White House,” and “Tales from the National Press Club,” both published by the History Press. He previously taught  Journalism and New Media with American University’s Washington Semester Program. Coming to Washington in 1985 from the Tampa Tribune, he was a national correspondent for the Media General News Service for 22 years, writing for 23 Southern newspapers. Gil was the 1994 president of the National Press Club and now chairs its History and Heritage Committee. In 2008, he toured the United States for the Club, moderating forums with local journalists on the future of journalism and how to protect its core values. He recently was appointed president of the National Press Club Journalism Institute.
