Biographical or Historical Information
Donald and Martha Robertson formed a unique academic partnership on the Tulane University campus and also, in a larger sense, in the area of study of pre-Columbian and colonial Latin American art. Martha collaborated with her husband, Donald on several studies and served as his indispensable right hand in advising, typing, editing, and pushing his various projects to conclusion. Martha was educated in the traditional history of art; and through her close association with her husband, became as knowledgeable as he in the lesser-recognized field of pre-Columbian and colonial Latin American art. She served as an invaluable reference resource in the Latin American Library at Tulane University where she worked. Donald Robertson died in 1984. After Martha's death, the Martha and Donald Robertson Chair of Latin American Art was established at Tulane University.
