By NEWSChannel 2 Staff

CLINTON, N.Y. - Former Secretary of State and former U.S. Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton will give a free public lecture at Hamilton College on Friday, October 4, at 6:30 p.m., in the Margaret Bundy Scott Field House.

Clinton served as U.S. Secretary of State from Jan. 21, 2009, until Feb. 1, 2013, after nearly four decades in the public eye as an advocate, attorney, first lady and senator. Her visit is part of the Sacerdote Great Names Series at Hamilton, named in recognition of a significant gift from the family of Alex Sacerdote, a 1994 Hamilton graduate and current trustee of the college.

Clinton will be the fourth former secretary of state to speak as part of the Sacerdote Series, following Colin Powell, Madeleine Albright and Condoleezza Rice. Other speakers in the Series have included President Bill Clinton, who visited Hamilton College in November, 2004, Jon Stewart, Rudy Giuliani, Jimmy Carter, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Lady Margaret Thatcher, and F.W. deKlerk.

In 1998, jazz and blues singer/musician B.B. King was the first artist to appear as part of the series.
