Ron Duquette portrayed Albert Gallatin and spoke about the experiences of the Swiss founding father and immigration laws in the early American republic. Geneva native Albert Gallatin immigrated to the United States in 1780. After representing Pennsylvania in the U.S. Senate and House in the 1790s, he served as Treasury Secretary from 1801 to 1814, and was later ambassador to France and England.

The lecture was part of a two-day symposium hosted by the U.S. Capitol Historical Society titled “Congress and a Nation of Immigrants, 1790-1990: From the First Naturalization Act to the Simpson-Mazzoli Act.” This was held in the Russell Senate Office Building. close
