After a brief business meeting, Historian Lynn Parsons will deliver a lecture entitled, “Some Thoughts About Alexander Hamilton: ‘The Bastard Brat of a Scotch Pedlar’.”

A Register by Alexander Hamilton from 1790

In this lecture, Dr. Parsons will explore his relationship with Alexander Hamilton, which began more than a half-century ago, when as a graduate student he published his first peer-reviewed essay, followed by his doctoral dissertation, and extended to last December, when he attended the musical “Hamilton” in New York City.
