Gomez B. Robinson

Gomez Robinson, 1922 Gomez Robinson, 1923

Gomez B. Robinson was born on 10 Apr 1901 in Missouri, the son of Lizzie Robinson. He graduated from Lincoln High School and then attended a vocational school. He married Margaret in 1922.

Despite the fact that the directory and yearbook both indicate that he attended K-State during the 1922-1923 academic year, his transcript indicates that he entered on 05 Feb 1924, studying mechanical engineering. He lists Kansas City, Kansas, as his permanent address. A number of courses transferred, but he only stayed one semester.

He lived in the Phi Beta Sigma Chapter House, 1020 Colorado, while attending K-State. The 1930 census finds him living in Kansas City, Missouri, with his wife, Margaret, and three children, Carmen, Gomez, and Frances. He was working as an interior decorator.

Gomez Robinson died in May of 1979 in Kansas City, Missouri.
