Famous Harvard Finals Club Members

List of Famous Harvard Final Club Members ranked by fame and popularity. David Fincher's masterpiece “The Social Network” provided many viewers with their first look inside Harvard's prestigious Final Clubs. Each fall the Final Clubs hold a “punch season” in which freshmen and sophomores are evaluated for membership. Here is a list of famous Harvard Final Club members.

The Fox Club was founded in 1898 and it lists poet T.S. Eliot, figure skater Paul Wylie and Microsoft founder Bill Gates as members. Bill Gates famously left Harvard in 1975 because as he states in his autobiography, “I wasn’t sure the window of opportunity for starting up a software company would open again.” Facebook co-founder Eduardo Saverin was a member of the Phoenix SK Final Club.

The Spee Club was founded in 1852 and became the first Harvard Final Club to admit an African-American member in the 1960s. President John F. Kennedy and his brother Senator Robert F. Kennedy were both members of the Spree Club. Olympic rowers and American entrepreneurs Cameron and Tyler Winklevoss were both members of the Porcellian Club.
