Ron Chernow and Lin-Manuel Miranda Honored at the

New-York Historical Society’s Annual History Makers Gala

 Monday, November 9, 2015

On Monday, November 9, 2015, the New-York Historical Society presented Ron Chernow and Lin-Manuel Miranda with the distinguished 2015 History Makers Award during its annual History Makers Gala at Cipriani Wall Street.  The event featured a conversation with the honorees moderated by Charlie Rose and a special tribute to Richard Gilder, Trustee and Chairman Emeritus of the New-York Historical Society. More than 700 people were in attendance.

“We are very pleased to present Ron Chernow and Lin-Manuel Miranda with our History Makers Award, as their exceptional body of work offers a truly fresh perspective on American history,” said New-York Historical Society President and CEO Dr. Louise Mirrer. “Both Mr. Chernow’s award-winning biography Alexander Hamilton and Mr. Miranda’s sensational Broadway show Hamilton humanize a legendary New Yorker and shed light on the complex history of America’s founding era, making it accessible and compelling for today’s audiences.”

This year’s gala raised nearly $2.9 million dollars. The funds raised benefit the New-York Historical Society’s programs, including its major Museum exhibitions and education programs serving over 200,000 New York City public school students annually.

Dinner Chairs:


Helen and Robert Appel, Lois Chiles and Richard Gilder, Susan and Roger Hertog, Diana and Joe DiMenna, Pam and Scott Schafler, Bernard L. Schwartz


Gala Co-Chairs:

Norman S. Benzaquen, BNY Mellon, Elizabeth B. Dater, Barbara and Richard Debs, Lawrence N. Field, Buzzy Geduld, Kristin R. Gervasio and Stuart J. Rabin, Peggy Eve Gilder, Richard Gilder III, Ahuva and Martin J. Gross, Patricia and John Klingenstein, Paula and Tom McInerney, Bonnie and Richard Reiss, Jr., Michelle Smith, Sue Ann Weinberg, Leah and Michael Weisberg



Honorable guests included Helen and Robert Appel, Renee and Robert Belfer, Norman Benzaquen and Judy Zankel, Judy and Howard Berkowitz, Debbie Black, Ken Buckfire, Nancy and Colin Campbell, Ron Chernow, Louise Hirschfeld Cullman and Lewis B. Cullman, Jim Dale, Diana DiMenna, Sandy Jacobs, Wynton Marsalis,

Lin-Manuel Miranda, Louise Mirrer, Tim Blake Nelson, Charlie Rose, Pam Schafler, Laurie Tisch



Ron Chernow, an honors graduate of Yale and Cambridge, has received wide acclaim for his deeply researched yet vivid bestsellers focusing on the course of individual lives within the structures and institutions of American history. His first book, The House of Morgan, won the National Book Award and was voted one of the 100 best-nonfiction books of the 20th century by the Modern Library Board. Chernow received the prestigious George S. Eccles Prize for Best Business Book for The Warburgs and was nominated for a National Book Critics Circle Award in biography for his books on the lives of both John D. Rockefeller and Alexander Hamilton. Alexander Hamilton was also the first recipient of the influential George Washington Prize for the year’s best book on the founding era.


Mr. Chernow won the Pulitzer Prize for Biography and New-York Historical Society’s American History Book Prize for Washington: A Life. Along with Lin-Manuel Miranda, he received a Lucille Lortel Award for Outstanding Musical as a member of the creative team of Hamilton. A recipient of six honorary doctorates, Chernow is a former president of PEN American Center, the largest and most important book writers’ organization in the country.


Lin-Manuel Miranda, a Hunter College High School and Wesleyan University graduate, is the Tony-winning composer-lyricist-star of Broadway’s In the Heights. The show received four 2008 Tony Awards, including Best Musical, with Miranda receiving a Tony Award for Best Score. In the Heights also won a 2009 Grammy Award for its Original Broadway Cast Album and was a finalist for the 2009 Pulitzer Prize in Drama.


Mr. Miranda’s latest musical, Hamilton, is now on Broadway at the Richard Rodgers Theatre (after its world debut in 2015 at the Public Theater), with book, music, and lyrics by Miranda, in addition to him playing the title role. Miranda is also the co-composer and co-lyricist of Broadway’s Bring it On: The Musical (2013 Tony nomination – Best Musical). He is a Council Member of The Dramatists Guild, serves on the board of Young Playwrights Inc., and was recently appointed by Mayor Bill de Blasio to New York City’s Theater Subdistrict Council.


About the New-York Historical Society

Founded in 1804, the New-York Historical Society has a mission to explore the richly layered history of New York City, state, and the country, as well as to serve as a national forum for the discussion of issues surrounding the making and meaning of history.

New York Historical is recognized for engaging the public with deeply researched and far-ranging exhibitions, such as Alexander Hamilton: The Man Who Made Modern America; Slavery in New York; Nature and the American Vision: The Hudson River School at the New-York Historical Society; Grant and Lee in War and Peace; Lincoln and New York; The Grateful Dead: Now Playing at the New-York Historical Society; Nueva York; Revolution! The Atlantic World Reborn; WWII & NYC; The Armory Show at 100: Modern Art and Revolution; and Chinese American: Exclusion/Inclusion. Supporting these exhibitions and related education programs is one of the world’s greatest collections of historical artifacts, works of American art, and other materials documenting the history of the United States and New York.

This fall, New-York Historical presents two groundbreaking exhibitions: Superheroes in Gotham (October 8, 2015–February 21, 2016), sharing the fascinating, inspiring, and largely unknown history of superheroes in New York City and beyond; and Silicon City(November 13, 2015–April 10, 2016), exploring New York’s pivotal role in launching the digital age.
