When U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan and the United Nations received the Nobel Peace Prize on December 10th in Oslo, Hamilton recalled one of its own. Elihu Root, a member of the Class of 1864, received the prestigious honor in 1912. Root served his country as Secretary of War, Secretary of State and U.S. Senator and was for decades a leading figure in American public life. His family was long associated with the College, for both his father, Oren "Cube" Root, and his older brother, Oren "Square" Root, had taught mathematics at Hamilton during the 19th century.
