That jaw! Those eyes! That hair! If the $10 bill is anything to go by, Alexander Hamilton was one of our handsomest Founding Fathers. But Hamilton’s had a bit of help over the years from artists at the Bureau of Engraving & Printing – resulting in a “Hollywoodized” Hamilton, as biographer Ron Chernow labeled it. In 2010, Newsweek even asked a plastic surgeon to give his assessment of the rather substantial changes in Hamilton’s portrait from the 1914 version (at left), to the redesign in 2000 (center), and the updated 2005 $10 bill (at right). Hotness definitely INCREASING! 

Is this a little institutional bias toward the first Secretary of the Treasury, perhaps? Just something we’re thinking about as we work on our history of money show!

An Italian mobile library. Wouldn’t it be cool to have one of these in your own community?
