College’s burying ground subject of upcoming presentation

CLINTON — The public is invited to join the Clinton Historical Society in welcoming Hamilton College’s Fred Rogers, the self-appointed “dean and docent” of the College cemetery, for an exploration of Hamilton’s history and heritage through the revealing optic of its ancient burying ground.

Part presentation, part meditation on the college’s institutional past, the hour-long pictorial transit through the tombs will start at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Oct. 9, and celebrate the well-lived lives that continue to shape today’s Hamilton, event organizers said.

On the Hill, Rogers currently serves as director of gift planning and formerly directed the Hamilton Fund. An author and speaker, Rogers has written historical pieces for Hamilton magazine in addition to leading regular tours of the cemetery.

Rogers is descended from three generations of Hamiltonians going back to the mid-19th century and is the parent of an alumna in the Class of 2021. He holds degrees from Harvard College, Middlebury College, and the General Theological Seminary.
