Fred Hamilton, one of Denver’s great civic leaders, passed away last week and was honored in a very moving tribute ceremony in his beloved Denver Art Museum (DAM) on Thursday evening.

Fred was an original booster of the Scientific and Cultural Facilities District (SCFD) in the 1980s, joining other leaders from the DAM, such as Rex Morgan, Fred Mayer and Barry Hirschfeld. They helped form the initial advocacy group. He was a leading participant in the successful 2004 renewal of the District and organized the DAM’s early advisory committee for the current renewal campaign.

Thanks to Fred and his wife, Jane, for their leadership and support.
