             Historical note 
             The Gridiron Club was founded in 1885 by a group of Washington, D.C. journalists, such as Benjamin Perley Poore, the club's first president. One of the most prominent organizations for journalists, the Gridiron Club admits members solely through invitation. Traditionally the club only admitted newspaper journalists but in recent years it has included broadcast journalists as well. The club puts on an annual dinner every year, which includes politically satiric remarks from the President and members of each political party.
