The Robertson Founder's Chair in British History


The Robertson Founder's Chair in British History was established at Westminster College to commemorate its founder, Rev. Dr. William Robertson. The Rev. Robertson's grandddaughter, Mrs. Hermann, founded the Chair in 1984 through the Grover Hermann Foundation.

In partnership with the US-UK Fulbright Commission in London, Westminster College has brought a different visiting professor of British History from the United Kingdom every year, thanks to the support provided by The Robertson Founder's Chair.

Holders of the Chair have hailed from all four corners of the United Kingdom: England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales.
