According to Wikipedia, Charles Vernon Hamilton is a political scientist, civil rights leader, and the W. S. Sayre Professor Emeritus of Government and Political Science at Columbia University. Biography Hamilton was born in Muskogee, Oklahoma. His family moved to the southside of Chicago, Illinois in 1935, which is where he was raised. He had aspirations to be a journalist growing up, but he was dissuaded as, in his words, “there [weren’t] many jobs for black people who want to be journalists.” He went to Roosevelt University to study political science and graduated in 1951, and went on to earn a master's degree in 1957 from the University of Chicago. He joined the Tuskegee Institute faculty in 1958, but his contract there was terminated in 1960, and he returned to the University of Chicago, where he earned a Ph.D. in 1964. He held faculty positions at Rutgers University, Lincoln University , and Roosevelt University before joining the Columbia University faculty in 1969. Hamilton retired from the Columbia faculty in 1998 and later moved to Chicago.
