Hailing from Uvalde, Texas, McConaughey's career began with a chance encounter which lead to a breakout role in the cult classic Dazed and Confused. His career took off, earning him various accolades and awards, including the Best Actor Oscar for his role in Dallas Buyers Club.

Beyond the screen, McConaughey and his wife, Camila, founded the "Just Keep Livin" Foundation, focusing on empowering high school students with tools for healthy living.


Past speakers at Hamilton College's Great Names series include Bill Clinton, Derek Jeter, Tina Fey, Jon Stewart, and Margaret Thatcher. According to their website:

The Sacerdote Great Names Series brings to campus national and international leaders in government, business, science and the arts. Established in 1996, the series provides Hamilton students, professors and staff members, as well as the broader community, with opportunities to interact with some of the world’s most renowned individuals through free, public lectures and, in many cases, intimate classroom discussions.
