The Alexander Hamilton Medal is presented each year by the Columbia College Alumni Association to an alumnus/a or faculty member for distinguished service and accomplishment in any field of endeavor. The Alexander Hamilton Medal, first presented in 1947 to Nicholas Murray Butler, is the highest tribute awarded to a member of the Columbia College community. Among alumni, Hamilton Medal recipients are rarer and tend to be more impressive on average than the winners of the John Jay Award alone, and is often a sort of next step up from that prize.

Recently, Herman Wouk's was sold on eBay as a paperweight.

Past Winners

Previous winners also include Columbia President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
