Westerners International


Westerners International is committed to fun and scholarship in and about the American West. Add great company, exciting programs and publications, fellowship opportunities for young people, and the still wide-open Western landscape, and you’ll know what we’re about. As historian Ray Allen Billington put it: “Westerners share a dislike for stuffed-shirtism, over-seriousness, shiftless thinking, and above all ignorance.” We happily follow Billington’s trail!

Westerners was founded in 1944 and has over 60 corrals (or chapters) in the US, and 20 corrals abroad, with over 4,000 members around the globe. Corrals generally meet monthly for camaraderie and interesting programs on all aspects of Western history.
