Harvard and Colgate will contribute thousands of dollars each to support the participation of their students at the AHI kick-off colloquium, “Liberty and Slavery: The Civil War between Gerrit Smith and George Fitzhugh.” 

“The AHI compliments the administrations of both Harvard and Colgate for their generous investment in the colloquium and in their students,” said Robert Paquette, the conference organizer.  “Professors John Stauffer (Harvard) and Pete Banner-Haley (Colgate) received enthusiastic responses to their requests for funding from university officials.  A generous contribution from a Hamilton College alumnus will support the presence of 17 Hamilton College undergraduates  at the colloquium.
