10 Amazing Vintage Explorers Club Annual Dinner Programs

Hannah Keyser

This Saturday is the New York City-based Explorers Club's 111th Annual Dinner. The event—held for the first time at the American Museum of Natural History—is already sold out, but check out the program covers and menus below for a look at over a century of strange food and incredible artwork. The earlier ones don't include menus because, although the dinners sound delicious, they don't feature the sort of exotic fare that made the annual celebrations famous in later years.
