Among the greatest satisfactions in my life is to give back to Hamilton
Milton P. Kayle ’43 accomplished a great deal for Hamilton during his lifetime, and his gift planning efforts continue to benefit his wife, Dorothy, and current students. In addition to supporting the Annual Fund, Milt established an achievement prize named for his father-in-law, H. Samuel Slater, and two endowed scholarships — one named for a favorite high school teacher, Owen Roberts ’25, and another for a client who worked with disadvantaged children — that make annual financial aid awards to current students. He completed a life income gift with the College that makes payments to Dottie and eventually will augment the scholarships. Milt also named Hamilton as a beneficiary of his estate plan.
Special Assistant to and the youngest member of President Harry S. Truman’s staff, Milt later became a successful attorney and for Hamilton served as a trustee, the first chair of planned giving and the half-century annalist for the Class of 1943.
