Geologist Janet Wert Crampton says the renown of Hamilton's Geosciences Department is a motivating factor in the consistent financial support she and her husband Colonel Theodore H. M. Crampton '47 have given the College. Ted Crampton notes that besides repaying alma mater, annuities serve as welcome sea anchors just when most other assets have lost value. They appreciate that the gift annuity rate is higher than CD or money-market rates and gift annuity income has tax advantages over other fixed income. Since 1999, the Cramptons have completed seven charitable gift annuities with Hamilton.
