Ellis Island

By bentonscholars on April 16, 2013


In 2010, a group of Benton Scholars traveled to Ellis Island in New York City to learn about the great importance it played in the history of immigration to the US.  They were accompanied on this trip by members of a local Hamilton group called “Lifelong Learners.”  Upon their return to Colgate. the Benton Scholars arranged to have Professor Nancy Foner of Hunter College come to Colgate and speak on her book “From Ellis Island to JFK: New York’s Two Great Waves of Immigration.”
