Horatio Alger Members are part of a group of distinguished individuals who have experienced a wide spectrum of what life can offer. Similar to characters in stories by Horatio Alger, Jr., they traditionally have started life in humble or economically challenging circumstances, or have overcome significant challenges later on in life. In spite of their adversities, or many would say because of them, they have worked with great diligence to achieve success and the fulfillment of their dreams.

Members are dedicated civic, corporate and cultural leaders who demonstrate individual initiative and a commitment to excellence, as exemplified by remarkable achievements accomplished through hard work, honesty, self-reliance, and perseverance over adversity. They have made outstanding contributions in the fields of science, medicine, business, entertainment, athletics, law and jurisprudence, religion, education and the arts.

While their life and career paths are varied, Horatio Alger Members are individuals who embody the spirit of resilience and serve as living examples of how determination can lead to extraordinary accomplishments. They have attained the American Dream and are committed to ensuring it for future generations.
