Alexander Hamilton

Author of The Federalist Papers  

Alexander Hamilton's image contrasts strongly with Thomas Jefferson's, and I believe finding a balance between their differences enabled them to envision and create a powerful government dedicated to preserving the freedoms of the individual citizens.

As a lawyer determined to see the new nation he'd fought for succeed, Hamilton looked at other governments throughout history and sought to build a strong central government. Ultimately he was able to work with the other Founding Fathers to build a resilient government that nations throughout the world would come to emulate.

The ability of the United States to withstand tyranical politicians and crises such as the Civil War is largely due to the conscientious work of Alexander Hamilton and the other Founding Fathers.

This image o f the personality of Alexander Hamilton, one of America's Founding Fathers, shows he is pragmatic and extremely logical.

In 1777 Hamilton became an aide to the Contenental Army's General George Washington, and he wrote over half of the Federalist Papers in the late 1780s. Hamilton served as the first Secretary of the Treasury of the United States, from 1789–1795, and in 1791 he played central role in forming the First Bank of the United States.

Thomas Jefferson

Author of the Declaration of Independence  

Thomas Jefferson's image contrasts strongly with Alexander Hamilton's, and I believe finding a balance between their differences enabled them to envision and create a powerful government dedicated to preserving the freedoms of the individual citizens.

As a plantation owner with a variety of interests, Jefferson was determined to build a democratic nation based on the ideals of freedom and individual responsibility. Ultimately he was able to work with the other Founding Fathers and build a resilient government that nations throughout the world would come to emulate.

The ability of the United States to withstand tyranical politicians and crises such as the Civil War is largely due to the conscientious work of Thomas Jefferson and the other Founding Fathers.

Author of the Declaration of Independence  

This image of the personality of Thomas Jefferson, one of America's Founding Fathers, shows he is logical and extremely idealistic.

In 1775 Jefferson wrote America's Declaration of Independence, and his Statute for Religious Freedom was put into law in Virginia in 1786. Jefferson served as the third president of the US, from 1801–1809, and in 1825 the Marquis de Lafayette toasted him as the father of the University of Virginia.

James T. Kirk

Captain of Star Trek's Enterprise  

The profiles and images of the three main characters in the Original Star Trek series — Kirk, Spock, and McCoy — were among the first I did back in the 1980s, so it makes sense they should be among the first posted on this site.

It is interesting to see how Captain Kirk's image is similar to Mr. Spock's, while showing how Kirk's personality is much less extreme. Kirk's image shows how his being decisive yet well-rounded helps him be a more sympathetic and human leader than the cold and extremely logical Spock.

Captain of Star Trek's Enterprise  

This image of James T. Kirk, Captain of the U.S.S. Enterprise in the Original Star Trek series, shows he is decisive and can remain cool under pressure.

These are good traits for a leader to have — certainty and the ability to keep emotions at bay when things get difficult are qualities that inspire followers.
