Carl Hamilton joined the firm, then known as Edwin G. Booz & Fry Surveys, as a partner in 1935 and made significant contributions to clients and the firm’s governance until his death in 1946.
A specialist in marketing, Carl distinguished himself as a rainmaker who attracted major clients to the firm and performed highly regarded work for organizations such as Olin Corp. and the Lumber Manufacturers Association.
Although he joined the firm later in his career and spent just over a decade in its leadership, Carl left a lasting mark through his authorship of Booz Allen’s original Code of Ethics. Written in the 1930s, it was among the first codes of ethics by any corporation or partnership. He articulated 10 principles about the obligations of the firm’s leaders to clients, each other, and to the greater good.
