Two men giving speech from 1997

Michael McHugh and Hebert H. Pearce established the Alexis de Tocqueville Society of Greater New Haven. Calling it “a program that was good for the United Way and therefore good for Greater New Haven,” they set a goal of getting five people to commit to joining the society in its first year. Thanks to their incredible efforts, the Alexis de Tocqueville Society of Greater New Haven was launched with 10 members in 1997.
