Biographical/Historical Information

James I. "Bud" Robertson Jr., Civil War historian, author and Alumni Distinguished Professor of History at Virginia Tech, was born in Danville, Virginia, in 1930. After graduating from Randolph-Macon College (B.A., 1955), Robertson obtained his M.A. (1956) and Ph.D. (1959) at Emory University and served as a teaching fellow (instructor in history) at Emory from 1958 to 1959. From 1959 to 1961, Robertson served as editor of Civil War History, a quarterly journal published by the University of Iowa. In 1961, he was appointed executive director of the National Civil War Centennial Commission by President John F. Kennedy and served until 1965, supervising the national observance of the Civil War centenary. Robertson served as professor of history at the University of Montana from 1965 until 1967, when he joined the faculty of Virginia Tech. He served as History Department head from 1969 to 1977, and was C. P. Miles Professor of History from 1977 to 1992. He became Alumni Distinguished Professor of History in 1992.

Robertson has authored many award-winning scholarly books on Civil War-related topics, including Soldiers Blue and Gray (1988) (nominated for the Pulitzer Prize in History), Civil War Virginia: Battleground for a Nation (1991), General A. P. Hill: The Story of a Confederate Warrior; and Stonewall Jackson: The Man, the Soldier, the Legend (1997). He has also written two books for younger readers: Civil War! America Becomes One Nation (1992) and Standing Like a Stone Wall: the Life of General Thomas J. Jackson (2001). Robertson has been a contributing author and editor for several other works; his articles, too numerous to list here, have appeared in many encyclopedias, Civil War magazines and historical society journals.

Scope and Content

The papers of James I. Robertson Jr., Civil War historian, author and Alumni Distinguished Professor of History at Virginia Tech, span the dates 1862 to 2001 and are comprised of writings and general materials. The writings consist largely of materials (research notes, manuscript drafts, typescript drafts and galley proofs) related to the writing and publication of a portion of Robertson's books and articles between 1982 and 2001. The small number of general materials includes items related to the preservation of lands adjacent to Manassas National Battlefield Park and a few manuscript drafts for various speeches made by Robertson.

Arrangement

Series I: Writings, 1981-2001, Boxes 1-34
This series contains research notes, manuscript and typescript drafts, edited working copies, master copies and galley proofs for 10 books and two articles published between 1982 and 20041. The series is arranged by the works' chronological order of publication. The materials for each work are arranged in chronological order, according to the dates supplied. (Where dates were unavailable, the sequence was determined by comparing the different drafts.) The drafts include revisions made by Robertson and others (identified in the individual folder descriptions, when possible). The series' holdings are not comprehensive and do not include every draft of every work. The subseries for Jackson & Lee, for example, contains only a typescript draft of a single chapter.

Series II: General Materials, 1862-1996, Box 35
All materials not directly related to the writing and publication of Robertson's works are assembled within this series, which includes items pertaining to the preservation of lands adjacent to Manassas National Battlefield Park, manuscript drafts for various speeches made by Robertson, a list of articles written by Robertson and assorted ephemera. Materials are arranged by function.

Series III: Oversize Materials, 1982-1990, Box 36
This series consists of oversize galley proofs which were too large to be filed in Series I. Items in this series are arranged according to the order in which they would have been filed had they remained in Series I.
