Nolan Asch, a local resident and history enthusiast, provided an illuminating talk on Alexander Hamilton, whom he described as a genius and our most underrated Founding Father.  Alexander Hamilton was responsible for a considerable number of institutions that live on today, including the Coast Guard, the central bank, the Bank of New York, The New York Post and a myriad of other longstanding institutions. Despite his New York affiliations, Asch described Hamilton as a “Jersey Boy,” because of his activities and contributions in this state, including the establishment of Patterson as an industrial center.
