The founders of the AHI are pleased to announce that Eugene D. Genovese, one of this country’s most influential historians, will be donating a substantial portion of his library in American history to the AHI.  With these volumes, the AHI will create a reading room in  honor of Professor Genovese and his late wife Elizabeth Fox-Genovese, also a prize-winning historian and influential public intellectual.  The AHI will accommodate this extraordinary gift by seeking to raise money for renovations of existing rooms in our headquarters, the former Alexander Hamilton Inn.
