Houston Socialites Part Two

Ursaline and Darryl Hamilton

Dr. Yvonne Cormier & Rufus Cormier

I promised you more good stuff so here it is!!

Named one of Houston’s 25 most beautiful people, Ursaline Hamilton moved from Arizona to Houston thirteen years ago when her husband Darryl Hamilton ended his major league baseball career. She works as a professional model and volunteers with Child Advocates Inc. She was also named one of the Houston Chronicle’s Best Dressed of 2007. The Hamiltons have two boys.

Dr. Yvonne Cormier holds an undergraduate degree from Southern Methodist University, attended Brown University and holds a Ph.D. in Pharmacology from Yale University. She received her M.D. from Baylor College of Medicine and is married to Rufus Cormier who is a partner in the Baker Botts law firm in Houston. He earned his law degree from Yale in 1973 and was the first African American named partner in a large Houston law firm in 1981. Yvonne Cormier was named to the Houston Chroncile’s Best Dressed Hall of Fame in 2004. According to sources, she is very good friends with The Clintons and Vogue Columnist Andre Leon Talley.

Just a few weeks back, the couple was named among ‘Houston’s Treasures’ at the Houston Social Book event. Their daughter Claire’s wedding was covered in the Houston press as she was presented as a debutante at the ultra-exclusive River Oaks Country Club Presentation Ball in 2006.
