The papers of Alexander Hamilton (ca. 1757-1804), first treasury secretary of the United States, consist of his personal and public correspondence, drafts of his writings (although not his Federalist essays), and correspondence among members of the Hamilton and Schuyler families. The collection, consisting of approximately 12,000 items dating from 1708 to 1917, documents Hamilton's impoverished Caribbean boyhood (scantily); events in the lives of his family and that of his wife, Elizabeth Schuyler Hamilton; his experience as a Revolutionary War officer and aide-de-camp to General George Washington; his terms as a New York delegate to the Continental Congress (1782-1783) and the Constitutional Convention (1787); and his careers as a New York state legislator, United States treasury secretary (1789-1795), political writer, and lawyer in private practice. Most of the papers date from 1777 until Hamilton's death in 1804. Additional details may be found in the collection's finding aid ( and versions).

The perils of writing “public poems” are well known, and most said she fared well, if not spectacularly so. But in many ways it didn’t sound like her at all. Its lines lacked the usual tightness of her lines, and missing was her deep sense of gender, her intense, lyrical eroticism—something that probably would have been hard to place appropriately in a poem for an occassion like this.Elizabeth Alexander received a B.A. from Yale University, an M.A. from Boston University, and a Ph.D. in English from the University of Pennsylvania. She has published four books PDF of poems: The Venus Hottentot (1990)- Body of Life (1996)- Antebellum Dream Book (2001)- and, most recently, American Sublime (2005), which was one of three finalists for the Pulitzer Prize.
