Kara Novak '08
Hamilton Names Kara Novak '08 as Second GOLD Scholar
Hamilton College is pleased to name Kara Novak, a junior from Carthage, N.Y., as its second GOLD Scholar.  Novak is a double major in math and music - a path that she feels Hamilton offers with particular skill. As a prospective student, Kara had considered other colleges with similar courses of study but discovered that the more arts-oriented schools would not offer her a full complement of math courses and technically oriented schools would not allow her to pursue music as fully as she wished. Enjoying music, math and the qualities that they share, Novak hopes to incorporate mathematics principles into her senior-year music thesis. More ...
Election of Alumni Trustees
  Each year, three candidates are nominated by the Alumni Council for four-year terms as Alumni Trustees. In addition, alumni may become petition candidates by obtaining signatures from approximately 0.1% or 25 of our more than 18,000 alumni. If no nominations by petition are received, a mail ballot election is not required. This year, there are five candidates for three Alumni Trustee terms beginning on July 1 – three candidates nominated by the Alumni Council and two candidates nominated by petition.   Nominated by the Alumni Council: George D. Baker, Jr. ‘74 Nancy Roob ‘87 Torrence D. Moore ‘92   Nominated by Petition: Peter D. Brown ‘73 Ben S. Wu ‘73   Ballots will be mailed in February to Kirkland alumnae and Hamilton alumni. The mailing will include biographical information and personal statements from each candidate. The three candidates with the highest number of votes will be elected to fill the three vacancies for Alumni Trustee.     Candidates may use the HOLAC message board to discuss their candidacies. Election procedures developed by the Executive Committee of the Alumni Council may be found at the link at the end of this article.   The Alumni Association sincerely thanks the three alumni trustees who will retire on June 30. They are Stuart J. Hamilton ’73, Mathew M. McKenna ’72, and Julie A. North ’84. Their four years of volunteer service will be recognized by the Association at the Annual Meeting held on Saturday, June 2 at Reunions ’07.   I urge you to participate in the election.

Alumni from all generations gathered in Albany, NY to toast the College's namesake.
Alexander Hamilton’s Birthday Celebrated in Grand Fashion

Alexander Hamilton, according to many scholars, would have turned 250 years old on Thursday, January 11, 2007.  The academic debate over Hamilton’s actual birth year did not deter the more than 1,000 alumni, parents and friends of Hamilton College from celebrating his bi-sesquicentennial anniversary at regional alumni association events around the world.

Beginning on Saturday, January 6 in Richmond, VA and continuing through Sunday, January 14, in Westchester County, NY, 27 parties were held.  Many of these featured birthday cakes, some with elaborate reproductions of Hamilton’s likeness.  Contests were held to determine who knew the most about the life and work of our College’s namesake and all the Hamilton family universally enjoyed honoring the memory of a great statesman, philosopher, economist, military leader and trustee of our most extraordinary College.    More ...

Richard Bernstein '80 Offers Investment Advice for 2007 in National Newspapers

Richard Bernstein '80, chief U.S. strategist at Merrill Lynch, was interviewed in The Wall Street Journal (1/2/07), The New York Times (1/2/07) and USA Today (1/3/07) about stock performance predictions for 2007. The Wall Street Journal noted: "Richard Bernstein, Merrill Lynch & Co.'s chief U.S. investment strategist and a longtime stock skeptic, has become downright bullish, forecasting a rise of 10.7% for the S&P 500 this year. Mr. Bernstein said he thinks the index will finish the year at about 1570, which would mark its first record since it finished at 1527.46 during the euphoria of March 2000.

"Before stocks reach those heights, Mr. Bernstein said, they could suffer some growing pains.

"'I just don't think everything is going to play out according to the perfect Goldilocks scenario that so many people expect,'" he said. "'People are overly optimistic. Even the average guy is putting money into emerging-market funds.'" 

 In USA Today Bernstein predicted that if the momentum stays positive on Wall Street, the biggest gains may be generated by large-cap stocks.  More ...
