Louisvilletickets.com 126 LOUISVILLE MAGAZINE 3.19 When I meet with Hamilton a month into her retirement, the 68-year-old seems peppier. She's a little less reserved and seems less time-conscious. "I saw the mayor and the mayor said, 'Oh, you look so relaxed,'" she says. Before leaving office, she and three assistants sorted more than two decades of documents, research and speeches. Whatever didn't go to archives or to her successor is now in about 20 boxes scattered throughout her home in Chickasaw, down the street from where she grew up. She has been chipping away at the files and is 31 pages into writing the book about her life and those who influenced her, particularly her mother. Without meetings and obligations, she sleeps in, which she enjoys because she's always been one to stay up till 2 a.m., reading or listening to audiobooks like Michelle Obama's memoir, Becoming. Most days, she gets up and fixes oatmeal and zucchini bread, along with a cappuccino. She reads the New York Times and is ready to start her day by noon. As research for her memoir, she has been gathering family photos from Oklahoma in the early 1900s. People have approached her to serve on boards and get involved in certain projects, but she says she has mostly declined, wanting to take time to relax and travel. But it is difficult for a history enthusiast like Hamilton to avoid things like the city's annual Martin Luther King Jr. Day motorcade and rally, where she served as a grand marshal. She's been helping plan a women's suffrage event for 2020, the centennial of women winning the right to vote, and was recently on a panel at the main library commemorating the 20th anniversary of the Fairness Ordinance. "I'm like Forrest Gump — you know, how he always was on the scene at a lot of events," she says. She's in a group called Sisters in History, and they meet to tell their stories and find intersections in social-justice efforts.
