Few scholars have had such an extensive general understanding of, or such an intensive interest in certain fields of history as had Dr. Robertson. The Philippines, Latin America, Florida, and Maryland all attracted his earnest, enthusiastic, and scholarly attention; and in each of those fields the results of his labors are outstanding. Though honors came to him from four continents, those who knew him best remember the man before the scholar.
