John Stauffer
Stauffer Lectures on Lincoln, Douglass and Great Books
“I’ve long been interested in Frederick Douglass and Abraham Lincoln,” announced Harvard professor John Stauffer to his audience in the Kennedy Auditorium on March 30. As a child, Stauffer frequently moved from one house to the next – nine times, to be exact – and as such, his experience of childhood was that of something impermanent and perpetually transitory. “Along with tennis, my constants were history and literature,” he said. No matter where he went, he could count on those things to remain the same. Significantly, at thirteen years old, a friend lent him Douglass' Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass – something that indeed changed his life for good. “I loved the way he wrote, and the power of writing resonated with me,” Stauffer explained. He read Abraham Lincoln a short time later, and soon become permanently enthralled with antebellum American history.

“Hamilton College was a conservative institution, resistant to change, whose fate was one of reform and change,” said Maurice Isserman, the James L. Ferguson Professor of History, as he presented a brief overview of Hamilton in the 19th and early 20th century.
