This list is an appendix of ISGP's Trilateral Commission article. All names have been gathered from historical membership lists of the Trilateral Commission, unless otherwise stated. These lists are available for download here.
Accuracy of membership period is within one year. In many cases this author hasn't gotten around to checking the whole period that an individual was a member of the Trilateral Commission. Just because it says, "Source(s): 1998", doesn't mean this person was only a member in 1998. It simply means that this person was spotted at a 1998 list, but that other lists haven't been checked for this name yet.

December 5, 2018, Rolling Stone, 'Is It Possible to Separate George H.W. Bush's GOP From Trump's?': "Ronald Reagan's victory in 1980 brought the breakthrough of anti-establishment sunbelt conservatism, and as Reagan's running mate and then his loyal vice president, Bush duly resigned from the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission (internationalist bogeymen to the hard right), and altered his stance on issues ranging from gun control to legalized abortion. Yet his gestures toward becoming a pork-rind eating, cowboy boot-wearing Reagan Republican were always as awkward as his syntax could sometimes be."
1982, Vol. 25, Robert Welch for his American Opinion, p. 98: "during the Florida Republican primary, candidate Reagan was asked if he would allow any members of the Trilateral Commission into his Cabinet if elected. He gave the following reply to that question in a campaign briefing on March 17, 1980: "Let me just say that I believe what prompts your question is that the present Administration, beginning with the President [Carter] and Vice President [Mondale], ... has something in the neighborhood of 19 of its top appointees all from a single group. Now, I don't believe that the Trilateral Commission is a conspiratorial group, but I do think its interests are devoted to international banking, multinational corporations, and so forth. I don't think that any Administration of the U.S. Government should have the top nineteen positions filled by people from any one group or organization representing one viewpoint. No, I would go in a different direction."
1984, American Opinion, p. 94: "Cabinet is full of people from such elitist and internationalist organizations as the Council on Foreign Relations and the Trilateral Commission. Wall Street executive Donald T. Regan (C.F.R.) was named secretary of..."millercenter.org/the-presidency/presidential-oral-histories/brent-scowcroft-oral-history-part-i (accessed: Aug. 25, 2022; recorded: August 10, 2000): "The President hated it. He was a former DCI. He had had a big Advisory Board, which he considered meddlesome. He wanted to abolish it. We went for--oh, I don't know--at least a year, maybe closer to two years, and he wouldn't talk to me about it. Oh, no [he didn't meet with them]. They all submitted their resignations, because there was a change of administration--and [Bush] simply didn't appoint a new PFIAB. ... There were the parts of the PFIAB--ancillary to the PFIAB. That is, there was a legal committee, an oversight committee for infractions and so forth that kept operating. But the PFIAB itself didn't exist. The idea wasn't to abolish the PFIAB, but it didn't have any people in it. I finally got him to agree to a PFIAB that was five people. The PFIAB is probably 40 people now. It's usually big and it was partly useful and partly a payoff to people. Absolutely [it is a place to park people]. Absolutely--stroke people who were important. So I got him to agree to a PFIAB that was five people--four of whom were highly technical to oversee the technical intelligence aspects. ... Bob Galvin of Motorola and people like that brought an innovative aspect to it, and we really needed them. He didn't mind that, because they wouldn't meddle so much. So there was a PFIAB. It was a highly specialized PFIAB. [The chair was an] Admiral--he was a guy who was nominated to be Secretary of Defense. Bobby Inman. I thought it was a useful body and that it was not a bad idea to have a group of knowledgeable people--just sitting, watching the intelligence community--saying, "Hey, why are you doing this this way? Why don't you do that? Why don't you do the other?" ["Well, you have an intelligence directorate on the NSC staff. Why not let them do that job?"] It's very tiny and the intelligence directorate served a very different function. It was my window into the CIA. It was staffed by a man from the clandestine services. It was my way to get into the operations. It was not an oversight function, at all, but my way to be inside the CIA. ...
I had a weekly meeting with the DCI and his deputy. ... I would always point out when I didn't think they were helpful. When they simply regurgitated, in a way, what one had already seen in the New York Times or something like that. So yes, I frequently would point those out. ... As long as it took. I'd set aside an hour--it didn't always take an hour.
Yes. It improved considerably [the presidential briefings]. The President [Bush] had a hand in that. In the Reagan administration, the briefing used to come down to the White House and then it would go into the Xerox machine and everybody would get copies of it. President Bush stopped that the first day. He said, "The briefing books"--there were maybe four or five of them--the President's, the Vice President's, the Secretary of State's, the Secretary of Defense. Anyway, they'd always be accompanied by a person from CIA--and they never would be out of his control. No Xeroxes, no one other than the people authorized would be allowed to read it. Therefore, the Agency was prepared to put things in it that they had just stopped putting in."

September 23, 2002, joi.ito.com, 'Global Leaders for Tomorrow Summit 2002': "Just finished an intense weekend in Geneva at the Global Leaders for Tomorrow Summit 2002. This was one of the best conferences I've ever attended. The Global Leaders of Tomorrow is a group of 100 or so people under the age of 37 that are chosen by the World Economic Forum every year. Then for 3 years or so, these leaders attend an annual meeting in September in Geneva and a meeting at Davos during the WEF Annual Meeting. By the time you "graduate" you end up with quite an interesting network of friends. The group is very diverse. There are probably around 40% women and 40% non-business people. Geographically, members are from everywhere. Afghanistan, Africa, Arab countries, Europe, Asia, Australia, etc. We have some rather important government officials as well as successful business people. It really shows how young people are able to rise much more quickly in other countries than in Japan. This year, the only two members from Japan were me and Oki Matsumoto. I think there are more Turkish women who are members than Japanese... This is the first year I attended the summit. The meeting at the Davos annual meeting was less focused because the WEF Annual meeting was going on at the same time. Since this summit is just for the GLT's it was much friendlier and more focused.

JD from Howard University School of Law in 1960. Member of the Omega Psi Phi and Sigma Pi Phi fraternities. Practiced law for a few years, partly in cases dealing with racial discrimination. Georgia field director for the "liberal CIA"-funded National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) 1961-1963. Active for the Southern Regional Council and then to the Voter Education Project from 1963 to 1970. First introduced to young Yale Law School activist Hillary Clinton in 1969, and again at another activist conference in April 1970.
March 8, 2022, The Saturday Evening Post, 'Bill Clinton and Vernon Jordan: Two Brothers of the South': "Jordan had known of Clinton for years through Hillary, whom he met in 1969, minutes after Hillary had given a speech at an activist conference in Colorado. She was sitting on a park bench, going over the rest of the day’s schedule with Peter Edelman, a former Robert Kennedy aide, when “into my eyesight came a pair of highly polished shoes and a voice that said, ‘Well Peter, aren’t you going to introduce me to this earnest young woman,’” Hillary remembered. “I looked [up]... From that day forward we stayed in touch with each other until I introduced him to Bill years later." ... Forty-three years later, Bill Clinton vividly recalls the first time the two met: "The Urban League banquet... Vernon and I were sitting on either side of the lectern where she was speaking, and her back was visible to Vernon. And he said to me after we were walking out, he said, 'She's a very attractive lady...'"
2007, Don Van Natta Jr. and Jeff Gerth, 'Her Way: The Hopes and Ambitions of Hillary Rodham Clinton', opening of Chapter 3: "An idealistic Hillary entered Yale Law School in September 1969 filled with a desire to become a citizen-activist who might just change the world. ... "The decision to apply and attend law school for me was an expression of belief: the system can be changed from within. ... The law can be an incredible vehicle for social change--and lawyers are at the wheel." ...
Executive director of the United Negro College Fund 1970-1971. President Rockefeller and Ford Foundation-funded National Urban League 1971-1981. Trustee Rockefeller Foundation 1971-1984. Member CFR 1978-. Partner in Akin, Gump, Strauss, Hauer & Feld. Visitor of Bilderberg 1979-1985 (joined the steering committee), 1987, 1989-2009, 2011-2013, 2016-2017, 2019. Director New World Foundation anno 1982, when Hillary Clinton joined it (board 1982 - March 1988, chair 1987-1988). Closest elite advisor of governor and then president Bill Clinton. Bilderberg. Visitor Sun Valley Meetings.
1998, David Brock, 'The Seduction of Hillary Rodham', p. 113: "Hillary [Clinton] appears to have gotten involved with the New World Foundation through Marian Wright Edelman; when Hillary joined the organization Edelman's husband Peter was a member of the New World's board, as was Democratic lawyer Vernon Jordan [p. 113]. When she signed onto the board in 1982, Hillary had already been serving since 1976 on the board of the Children's Defense Fund, where she had once worked as a young lawyer just out of Yale."
March 2, 2021, USA Today, 'Vernon Jordan, civil rights champion and 'first friend' to Bill Clinton, dies at 85': "Before becoming a prominent adviser and aide to Clinton, Jordan had roles with the NAACP, National Urban League and United Negro College Fund. ... While president of the Urban League, Jordan nearly died after being shot by a white supremacist with a hunter's rifle in 1980...
March 3, 2021, David Gergen for CNN, 'Vernon Jordan -- Clinton's best friend and my personal mentor': "I knew him best as the closest friend that President Bill Clinton had during his eight years in the White House...
February 22, 1998, New York Times, 'For Jordan, Lewinsky Matter Tests a Friendship': "Jordan's associates said the President and his lawyers had not told him a crucial bit of information at the time he was asked to help Lewinsky find a job -- that she had been dragged into the sexual misconduct lawsuit filed by Paula Corbin Jones against the President. Jordan, several friends said, felt he was treated badly by this omission. ... On the CBS News program "60 Minutes," Jordan's mentor and law partner, Robert S. Strauss, said bluntly last Sunday that there were limits to Jordan's loyalty to Bill Clinton... It has become clear in recent days, in private conversations and public forums, that if the Washington establishment must choose, it will stand by Vernon Jordan and not Bill Clinton. When people fall from grace in the capital they can fall slowly, or quickly, depending on whether the establishment -- a mix of political and journalistic royalty -- decides to help break their fall or kick them as they go down. ... For the President, one of the most painful parts of the Starr investigation has been that it has deprived him of the advice and company of Jordan, who has served as First Friend since Clinton moved into the White House."

Founder and honorary chairman Trilateral Commission.
December 8, 1991, Daily Yomiuri, 'Japan–US Relations – Past, Present and Future': "The idea [of creating the Trilateral Commission] was incorporated in a speech that I made in the spring of 1972 for the benefit of some industrial forums that [my] Chase [Manhattan Bank] held in different cities around Europe. [Next] Zbig [Brzezinski] and I both attended a meeting of the Bilderberg Group. [The idea] was shot down in flames. There was very little enthusiasm for the idea. I think they felt that they had a very congenial group, and they didn't want to have it interfered with by another element that would--I don't know what they thought, but in any case, they were not in favor."
2002, David Rockefeller, 'Memoirs', p. 405: "For more than a century ideological extremists at either end of the political spectrum have seized upon well-publicized incidents such as my encounter with Castro to attack the Rockefeller family for the inordinate influence they claim we wield over American political and economic institutions. Some even believe we are part of a secret cabal working against the best interests of the United States, characterizing my family and me as 'internationalists' and of conspiring with others around the world to build a more integrated global political and economic structure--one world, if you will. If that's the charge, I stand guilty, and I am proud of it."
2002, David Rockefeller, 'Memoirs', pp. 415-418: "The organization with which I have played a founding role has attracted as much public scrutiny and attention as the Trilateral Commission. Pat Robertson has insisted that Trilateral is trying to create a world government and claims that it springs "from the depth of something evil." My son Richard, when he was a student at Harvard in the 1970s, told me his friends assumed that Trilateral was part of a "nefarious conspiracy." ...
August 25, 1980, letter to the New York Times: "nonsensical defamation... I never cease to be amazed by those few among us who spot a conspiracy under every rock, a cabal in every corner. [I'm] singled out as the 'cabalist-in-chief'." April 28, 1996, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette: "It's so absurd I can't help but, to some extent, find it amusing."
April 6, 2002, Washington Times, 'Trilateral meeting to discuss terrorism': "Members of the 29-year-old commission laugh off the conspiracy theories. Although it is a private organization, its publications and memberships are public. “It’s so absurd I can’t help but, to some extent, find it amusing,” Mr. Rockefeller said in a 1996 interview with the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette."
The 1980 George Wald letter and David Rockefeller's reply (very obscure):
March 12, 1981, UPI, 'Nobel peace laureate George Wald Thursday night led more...': "Nobel peace laureate George Wald Thursday night led more than 2,000 people carrying signs and chanting in a protest against U.S. involvement in El Salvador."
1985, Hans Kochler, International Progress Organization, 'The Reagan Administration's Foreign Policy: Facts and Judgement of the International Tribunal', p. 18: "It is people like Kissinger, people like the members of the Trilateral Commission to which George Wald referred..."
1985, Executive Intelligence Review, 'The Trilateral Conspiracy Against the U.S. Constitution: Fact Or Fiction?', p. 117: "Professor George Wald, a Nobel laureate, who postulates in an Aug. 19 letter that “ John Anderson's try for the Presidency was invented by, or with the connivance of, the Trilateral Commission to cut into the Democratic vote ."
July-Sep. 1986, María Fernanda Arias in Estudios Internacionales, 'Trilateralismo y Politica Noteamericana en la Decada Del 80: El Caso de la Aministracion Reagan' (JSTOR): "su parte, George Wald consideró la candidatura de Anderson corno una forma utilizada por la Comisión Trilateral para restarle votos a Carter, ya que Anderson... ["For his part, George Wald considered Anderson's candidacy as a way used by the Trilateral Commission to take votes away from Carter, since Anderson..."]"
August 20, 1980, David Rockefeller letter to the New York Times: "I never ceased to be amazed at those few among us who spot a conspiracy under every rock, a cabal in every corner. Surprisingly, the latest to join the conspiracy theorists is Professor George Wald, a Nobel laureate, who postulates in an Aug. 19 letter that "John Anderson's try for the Presidency was invented by, or with the connivance of, the Trilateral Commission to cut into the Democratic vote..."
"And I think as Shashi has said, the Rockefeller family did not begin its international activities with this building. It was then with the Leagues [sic] of Nations, they had a lot to do with the League of Nations and David [Rockefeller] will probably say a little bit about that. And as most of you know, we also got this site thanks to his family to build the headquarters on it. And it's not only that. We often go back to [Rockefeller estate] Pocantico to have discussions and I recall the first time we had the ACC where all the UN agencies met to discuss the future of the international system and how we should cooperate, David, Lawrence [sic: Laurance Rockefeller] and the whole family were there to welcome us and to tell us this is what Father [John D. Rockefeller, Jr.] would have liked to see. And of course since then, senior UN officials meet there to talk. And I want to thank you, David, for your contribution to the international system. What you have done to keep doors open and to establish contacts and bridges across borders for this country and for other countries. I think without internationalists like you, the international system that we have been trying to build, the international system that we have today wouldn't be here. So thank you very much, David.""
