John B. Root '44 Exhibition Fund Established to Honor Long-Time Volunteer
Hamilton President Joan Stewart and nearly 100 friends and family members of John Root '44 gathered on April 27 at The Links Club in New York City, to celebrate John's more than 60 years of volunteer service to the College. Although he has served in virtually every volunteer capacity, it is his work with the Committee on the Visual Arts, including more than a decade as its chair, that stands out. In his honor, $260,000 was raised to establish the John B. Root '44 Exhibition Fund. Income from this fund will enhance annual exhibitions at Hamilton's Emerson Gallery, or its successor, currently in planning as part of Hamilton's Excelsior Campaign. Members of Hamilton's arts faculty and Emerson Gallery staff were among those honoring Root. More ...

Christopher Whitcomb '81 Contributes Op-Ed to New York Times

Christopher Whitcomb '81, a former sniper on the F.B.I's hostage rescue unit and now head of a security company, contributed an op-ed to The New York Times (4/20/07), titled "Building a Better Lockdown." In it, he questions how, despite studies, symposiums and the adoption of crisis-response protocols in the days since Columbine, a calamity like Blacksburg can happen. Whitcomb wrote: "The most obvious reason, and one that’s been widely discussed in the days since the shootings, is complacency. Well, we can wring our hands all we want, but to some extent complacency is unavoidable: it’s what sneaks in after all the blame has been handed out, the news media have disappeared, the critics have taken their shots and the political knees have stopped jerking."  More ...
