Alexander Hamilton 2009 Award Dinner

Wednesday April 2009


The Honorable Raymond W. Kelly Police Commissioner, City of New York
The Honorable Henry A. Kissinger Chairman, Kissinger Associates, Inc. and Former U.S. Secretary of State

The Alexander Hamilton Award was created to honor those individuals helping to foster the revitalization of our nation’s cities. We chose to name the award after Hamilton because, like the Manhattan Institute, he was a fervent proponent of commerce and civic life. Through the years, we have expanded the scope of the prize to celebrate leaders not just on the local level, but also at the state and federal levels, who have made remarkable things happen in the realms of public policy, culture, and philanthropy. We hope our celebration of these awardees encourages replication of their efforts.
