Former Presidents share Phi Beta Kappa link.

(This was a while ago, but I just discovered this link today) On January 7, President George W. Bush, with President-elect Barack Obama, hosted a historic reunion of former U.S. Presidents at the White House, the first gathering of its kind in more than twenty years. This meeting was an important occasion in the history of the office, as well as a landmark for the Phi Beta Kappa Society.

All of these Presidents past, present, and future — share a Phi Beta Kappa connection

All three former U.S. Presidents are Phi Beta Kappa members. George H.W. Bush became a member at Yale University in 1948, Bill Clinton at Georgetown University in 1968, and Jimmy Carter became an honorary member at Kansas State University in 1991.

The other two are sons of Phi Beta Kappa members. President George W. Bush's father is former President George H.W. Bush. President-elect Barack Obama's father, Barack Hussein Obama, Sr., became a member of Phi Beta Kappa at the University of Hawaii Manoa in 1962.

Phi Beta Kappans share the honor of membership with seventeen U.S. Presidents and seven of the nine current U.S. Supreme Court Justices. To see who else belongs to Phi Beta Kappa, click here.

There we go- yet another Masonic fraternity. Thanks for this.

From Wikipedia:

"The group consisted of students who frequented the Raleigh Tavern as a common meeting area off the college campus. There is a persistent rumor that a Masonic lodge also met in the same place, but there was a different building used by the Freemasons at Williamsburg.[11] It is true that ten of the original members were Freemasons.[12] Whether the students organized to meet more freely and discuss non-academic topics, or to discuss politics in a Revolutionary society, is unknown; the earliest records indicate only that the students met to debate and engage in oratory, and on topics that would have been not far removed from the curriculum."
