Robert Emmett Robinson Jr. ’29

Published in Oct. 14, 1992, issue

BOB DIED Sept. 25, 1991. He prepared at Choate, and at Princeton was on the tennis squad and in Triangle. He belonged to Key and Seal, and his roommates were Jim Miksak and Erik Barnouw. He left Princeton for a year, trying the life of a bindlestiff and itinerant harvest worker, but returned to finish with the Class of '30. During WWII he was in the Navy in the South Pacific, retiring as a lieutenant. He went into real estate and automobile sales, and became treasurer of the Princeton Alumni Assn. of New Hampshire. He and his wife were ardent environmentalists and local history buffs, especially about Tolman Pond and the town of Nelson, N.H., to which our professors Duncan Spaeth and Buzzer Hall were devoted. He married Hallie Robinson in 1947, and he is survived by their three children, Robert, James, and Mary Shook. The Class extends its sincere sympathy to them.
