The First International Conference on Cultural Intelligence will be held at the beautiful
Whittemore House in Dupont Circle in Washington, DC.
Nestled among Embassies of the World, the Whittemore House is an elegant historic mansion located in
Washington's Dupont Circle neighborhood. Built between 1892 and 1894 as a
private residence, it was designed by Washington architect Harvey L.
Page (1859-1934) for opera singer Sarah Adams Whittemore, a descendent
of the well-known Adams family of Massachusetts, and William C.
Whittemore, her second husband.
Chartered in 1922, the Woman’s National Democratic Club purchased the Whittemore property in 1927 for its use as a clubhouse.
The New York Sun
reported in May of 1927 that the purchase of “one of the finest old
houses in the heart of Washington’s most exclusive residential sections”
was the “last word in putting the ‘Ritz’ into politics.” The club has
hosted every Democratic president and presidential candidate since 1927
except one in addition to innumerable senators, congressmen, cabinet
members, diplomats, government policy makers, world leaders, and
Cultural Intelligence Institute is apolitical. The choice of venue is
based upon the layout and convenience of the house itself and not political affiliation.
