Since the Medal was founded in 1986, EIHS has honored distinguished and diverse individuals, including seven Presidents of the United States, Nobel Laureates and several outstanding individuals.

In addition to hosting their annual gala, EIHS remains dedicated to, and has raised significant funds for, the maintenance and restoration of Ellis Island.
