Alexander Hamilton: The Man Who Made Modern America

Exhibition Credits

Please use the following credit information on materials you produce for the exhibition. Also see "Further Guidelines for Sponsor Acknowledgement" below. If space is a problem, you may use the first paragraph only.

"Alexander Hamilton: The Man Who Made Modern America" is a national traveling exhibition organized by the New-York Historical Society, the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, and the American Library Association. The traveling exhibition has been made possible in part through a major grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, dedicated to expanding American understanding of human experience and cultural heritage.

The traveling exhibition is based on the New-York Historical Society's exhibition commemorating the 200th anniversary of Hamilton's death as well as the 200th anniversary of the founding of the Society in 1804.

Further Guidelines for Sponsor Acknowledgment:

  • The credit above should appear on all printed and other visual materials related to the exhibition, including press releases, brochures, publications, invitations, program flyers, advertisements, press kits, announcements, Web sites and local posters. It should also appear on any signage at the entrance to the exhibition. On all materials, it should appear in a type size that is readable and appropriate to the overall design. If there are space issues, please use the first paragraph only.

  • Please use the New-York Historical Society, Gilder Lehrman Institute, and American Library Association logos on materials whenever possible, in particular on smaller PR pieces on which there is not space for the full credit.

  • In speaking to or sending press releases to newspaper reporters, radio and TV interviewers and other media personnel, please stress that full sponsorship and funding credit should be included in all articles and features.
    Some libraries include a line set off at the beginning of press releases saying "Editor: Please do not edit out sponsorship credits in paragraph ___."

  • At press events and in public programs: The sponsorship of the NEH, the New-York Historical Society, the Gilder Lehrman Institute, and the ALA should be acknowledged orally at the beginning and end of press conferences, public programs, and other public events connected with the exhibition, and at the beginning and end of radio or television interviews. Use the official exhibition credit as a guide for oral announcements.

  • Local sponsor credits: Local sponsor credit must follow the
    Alexander Hamilton exhibition credit line or logos and be in a type size no larger than the exhibition credit. The exception is materials which are entirely supported by another funding source. In those cases, it is still necessary for the credit line and/or logos above to appear, but the additional sponsor's credit may appear first and in larger type.
