Friends of the AHI:

The Alexander Hamilton Institute for the Study of Western Civilization (AHI) is pleased to announce the release of our 2014 Annual Report.  It details our programs and achievements over the last year.  We encourage you to look inside for the many and varied achievements of the young men and women who have been nurtured by the AHI during their undergraduate years.

AHI Annual Report 2014

Also, the AHI is excited to announce two upcoming events this spring:

  • The Eighth Annual Carl B. Menges Colloquium at the Turning Stone Resort April 16-18, will be devoted to “Innovation, Entrepreneurship, and the Rule of Law:  How to Return America to Prosperity.”  Michael C. Munger, Professor of Political Science, Duke University, and Director of the Duke Philosophy, Politics, and Economics Program, will keynote.  Dr. Munger, an adjunct fellow at the Cato Institute, ran for governor in North Carolina in 2008 on the Libertarian Party ticket.  His prolific scholarship on the intertwining of markets, regulation, and government has received wide praise and he is an authority in the field of Public Choice.
  • In May, the AHI will co-sponsor a conference at RIT on “Spontaneous Orders,” a concept crucial to the Austrian School of Economics.  Dr. Lauren Hall, Professor of Political Science at RIT, will direct the conference.

For those who have already contributed to our mission, we thank you for your generosity. We ask those who have not yet contributed to help us to complete major initiatives, to undertake additional programming, and to maintain a scholarly center that the American Council of Trustees and Alumni calls an “oasis of excellence.”

We are supported exclusively by our donors. We receive no funding from the government or from Hamilton College. We look to parents, alumni, and other supporters to support our important and growing mission. You can donate online via PayPal.
