The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History has brought Alexander Hamilton to Ramona Convent with the national traveling exhibition Alexander Hamilton: Immigrant, Patriot, Visionary. The exhibit will be on display in the Ramona Convent campus library through March 7.
The exhibition, funded in part by the Rockefeller Foundation, examines Hamilton's important role in the Revolutionary War and founding period. More than any other founder, Hamilton foresaw the way we live now. In his Federalist Papers, he advocated ratification of the Constitution. As Treasury Secretary, he oversaw the adoption of a national currency; and, as an economist, he recognized the importance of trade and commerce in building a strong nation.
Freshmen Nicole Gonzalez was excited to see the panels. Hamilton, the musical, inspired her to learn more about that time in history by reading the acclaimed biography Alexander Hamilton: Revolutionary, by Martha Brockenbrough. "I loved reading each panel! They tie together everything I learned in the book and heard on the Broadway soundtrack," said Nicole.
For more information on the exhibition or other special events happening in the library, contact Aniko Tegtmeier, director of Library Services, at 626-282-4151.
