About Elizabeth Hamilton Cullum

A descendent of Alexander Hamilton, Elizabeth Hamilton Cullum and her friends joined together in 1884 to found the New York Cancer Hospital, which later became Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center. Mrs. Cullum decided to leave her entire estate to the hospital to ensure its important work continued after her lifetime. With her transformational gift, Mrs. Cullum secured her philanthropic legacy and set the course for MSK, the oldest and largest private cancer center in the world.
