A Gift for the Ages

"Thank you for the fountain of knowledge that drenched us," noted Tim Hutchens '60 as he continued the family tradition of including the College in his Will. His father, John K. Hutchens '26, set the example with a bequest to Hamilton. And the legacy doesn't end there; John McCormick '92, Tim's nephew and John's grandson, recently reported that he plans to include Hamilton in his Will. Regardless of size or purpose, bequests to Hamilton — a tradition begun in 1842 by William H. Maynard — reflect gratitude and loyalty to the College as well as concern for its future strength.
