Alexander Hamilton was a strong advocate for the U.S. Constitution and wrote articles in support of it (in the Federalist Papers).

Known as the "Father of American Finance," Hamilton had an interesting personal history.  Born on a Caribbean island, he came to pre-revolutionary America to study.  His prominent rise, soon after, is a success story in itself.
