A. T. Robertson (1863-1934) graduated from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in 1888. After graduation, John A. Broadus invited him to become his teaching assistant. Robertson became an associate professor in 1890 and a full professor after Broadus’ death in 1895. In 1894, Robertson married Ella Broadus, Dr. Broadus’ daughter, cementing the bonds of friendship between Robertson and his mentor. Robertson was the premier Baptist New Testament scholar, delivering the Stone Lectures at Princeton Seminary twice as well as publishing the massive A Grammar of the Greek New Testament (1914). He was also actively involved in the publication of the Baptist Argus newspaper as well as in speaking around the country.
The Robertson Papers consist of ten boxes, eight that have correspondence and two with miscellaneous notebooks. The collection also includes a manuscript copy of A Grammar of the Greek New Testament in the Light of Historical Research and bibliographic information about him.
Archives has prepared an inventory of the collection. An item calendar is available upon request.
