On Saturday, September 25, Dean Alfange, Jr. ‘50 served as the delegate for Hamilton College at the inauguration of Adam F. Falk as the 17th president of Williams College in Williamstown, Massachusetts.
Alfange is a Professor Emeritus of political science as the University of Massachusetts. Wearing his full regalia, he walked in the procession that commenced the induction ceremony, which coincided with Williams’ Convocation. Alfange attended with his wife, Barbara, and remarked that the festive occasion was pleasant.
Traditionally, at the inauguration of a college or university president a procession of delegates from institutions of higher educations, learned societies, and associations begins the ceremony. Hamilton is honored not only to have been invited to participate in the Williams procession, but also to have had Dean represent us in it.
