Sol Linowitz '35 and President Jimmy Carter
Life Trustee Sol Linowitz '35 Dies at the Age of 91
Life Trustee Sol M. Linowitz '35 died on March 18 in Washington at the age of 91. He had been in failing health. Sol Linowitz was Hamilton's most distinguished living public servant, following in the tradition of Elihu Root. He was a trusted advisor for a half dozen U.S. presidents, including Jimmy Carter for whom he served as co-negotiator of the Panama Canal treaties and representative for Middle East negotiations from 1979 to 1981. It was largely at Sol's urging that President Carter came to Hamilton as a Great Names speaker in April 2001, just three years after President Clinton awarded Sol the Presidential Medal of Freedom, this country's highest civilian honor.

Jim Memmott '64 Honors the Late Sidney Wertimer in Rochester Democrat and Chronicle Column

Jim Memmott '64, a senior editor and columnist at the Rochester Democrat and Chronicle, wrote about the legacy of the late Sidney Wertimer, long-time professor of economics at Hamilton, for a column in the paper (3/12/05). Memmott noted that Hamilton has been in the news lately because of the Ward Churchill speech controversy. Memmott wrote: "On Feb. 1, the college president canceled the speech, saying that death threats against her and Churchill raised serious issues of public safety.

As it happened, on that same day, Sidney Wertimer, a longtime professor of economics at Hamilton, died. He was 84.

For generations of Hamilton students, and certainly for me, that death was bigger news than the controversy surrounding Churchill.

Controversies, however serious, come and go.

Sidney Wertimer, on the other hand, had staying power," wrote Memmott.

On-Campus Summer Alumni College

Douglas Ambrose, the Sidney Wertimer Associate Professor of History, will facilitate Alexander Hamilton: The Life and Legacy of Our Most Elusive FounderThursday, July 28, through Sunday, July 31. Ambrose, a member of the Hamilton faculty since 1990, is a recipient of the Class of 1963 Excellence in Teaching Award. His teaching and research interests include American history, biography, early America and the Old South. Ambrose is the author of Henry Hughes and Proslavery Thought in the Old South. In addition, he has written numerous articles, book reviews and encyclopedia entries about Southern slavery and Southern intellectual life. Professor Ambrose will examine Hamilton through his own writing and through recent biographies of him, in an attempt to uncover the man, his accomplishments, and his lasting influence on the country to which he devoted his life.

Alexander Hamilton is one of those fascinating characters who makes us ponder what America was, is, and should be. He is also one of the most intriguing individuals in our history - a foreign-born orphan who rose to the highest levels of American political and social life. Although recent scholarship has established Hamilton's central role in America's founding era, the meaning of his contributions and legacy remain hotly debated. Was he a closet monarchist or a sincere republican? A victim of partisan politics or one of its most vigorous promoters? A lackey for the British or a foreign policy mastermind? An economic genius or a shill for special monied interests? Hamilton, in short, remains in history what he was for much of his life: a person who no one is neutral about.

Most activities for the session will take place in the beautiful Rogers Estate at the edge of the Hamilton campus. The Rogers Estate offers sweeping views of Clinton and the Oriskany Valley. Space in the facility is limited, so we recommend making your reservations as soon as possible. Rooms are comfortable and lounge areas are spacious. Since the Rogers Estate typically functions as a student residence, bathrooms may be shared. Alternate off-campus accommodations are available. One evening will include dinner and a performance at the world-renowned Glimmerglass Opera House in Cooperstown.

The cost is $575 per person or $1,100 per couple and includes books and other reading materials, residence hall accommodations, gourmet meals, opera tickets and transportation to Glimmerglass. The non-resident fee for local attendees is $470 per person. deposit of $150 per person is required no later than April 30, 2005. Full payment is due June 15. For more information about Alexander Hamilton: The Life and Legacy of Our Most Elusive Founder, please contact Bill Brower '84, Executive Director, Annual Giving and Alumni Programs, at 315-859-4027 or wbrower@hamilton.edu or Amy Palmieri, at 315-859-4667 or apalmier@hamilton.edu.  To register online click HERE.  More ...
