The historic, stately yellow-brick mansion that serves as the headquarters of the Alexander Hamilton Institute will be undergoing a face-lift in August,  thanks to a generous donation. The exterior will be painted, caulked, and repaired.  Improvements will also be made to the interior.

The Jane Fraser Room will be renovated to accommodate a series of distinguished guests who will be making their appearance in Clinton during the 2008-2009 academic year.  The AHI will  celebrate its first anniversary on Constitution Day, 17 September by inaugurating the David Aldrich Nelson Lecture in Constitutional Jurisprudence.  The Honorable Jeffrey Sutton, a federal judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit ,will be presenting.  We will announce details shortly.

A substantial number of smaller donations will allow improvements to the interior of the building .  To accommodate the informational  needs of visiting dignitaries and scholars a wireless network will be established throughout the building.  Computers will be added to several rooms, which will be renovated to provide office space for AHI fellows.

The AHI extends its deepest appreciation to those individuals and institutions across the country who are helping us water the seed of educational reform with their donations.
