Frederic Franklin: A Biography of the Ballet Star
Frederic Franklin: A Biography of the Ballet Star By Leslie Norton (July 2007) Associate Professor of Dance Leslie Norton has authored a second book, Frederic Franklin: A Biography of the Ballet Star (McFarland & Co., Inc.). Frederic Franklin was one of the most famous ballets stars of the twentieth century. His performing career reached its peak during his years as a principal with the Ballet Russe de Monte Carlo (1938-57). During that time, such choreographic legends as George Balanchine, Bronislava Nijinska, Agnes de Mille and Sir Frederick Ashton created roles especially for Franklin in their new ballets. In the 60's and 70's, he was Artistic Director of the National Ballet, the first major ballet company in the nation's capital. He then began a new career phase, staging historically significant ballets from the Petipa, Diaghilev, Americana, and Balanchine eras. Franklin has staged works for American Ballet Theatre, London's Royal Ballet, Milan's La Scala and numerous major regional ballet companies across the United States. He has been pivotal in preserving the masterpieces of nineteenth and twentieth-century ballets in their original, authentic form, thus handing down the highly-perishable legacy of the masters to younger generations whom Franklin has inspired with his teaching, coaching and stagings. Now, at the age of ninety-three, Franklin still fills his calandar with performances and stagings. He continues to dance principal character roles with American Ballet Theatre and very recently staged a revival of Sir Frederick Ashton's Devil's Holiday for the Royal Ballet's Ashton centenary. On that same trip to London, in a royal ceremony, Franklin was proclaimed a Commander of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II herself. In writing this book, Professor Norton conducted over thiry hours of private interviews with Franklin and another thirty in interviews with Franklin's most noteworthy colleagues. Additional information was obtained through the Jerome Robbins Dance Division, New York Public Library for the Performing Arts, the NYPL Newspaper Archives, The Balanchine Foundation in New York City, The George Verdak Dance History Archives in Indianapolis, and Mr. Franklin's personal collection. On July 14 of this year, Franklin and Norton appeared at the renowned Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival on the Festival's "Pillow Talk" series to discuss the new book. More ...

Hagstrom Quoted in Reader's Digest
Although the Reader’s Digest’s story, “Second Chance City - A wave of refugees is bringing new life to a dying American town” paints Utica as a city that has plunged into an “economic meltdown,” Hamilton’s Associate Professor of Economics Paul Hagstrom offers some hope. His research, which is referenced in this article, focuses on the economic impact of refugee resettlement and the refugees’ effect on local labor markets on the central New York community. His data show that after approximately 15 years, Utica’s investment in refugee resettlement will bear fruit, offering the city an effective long-term strategy for its economic survival. According to the Digest article, “Utica is still a long way from its former prominence as one of New York's most prosperous cities…but housing values increased 52 percent between 2001 and 2006.” More ...
