Chip Robert: Life as Art

“The papers reveal the impact and influence of this Atlanta businessman during a significant period of growth in Atlanta. The Robert papers complement the many archives that comprise the modern Southern and political collections in the Rose Library and will be of great value for future generations exploring Atlanta history.” Jennifer King, Rose Library Director

In life, as in art, process is essential. Each risk that we take or decision that we make is a part of our own individual process. In the end, we can see the artful process of a life through reflecting on and examining the details. When Chip Robert passed, in 1976, he left a legacy that continues to shape the South. Industrialist, world traveler, and dedicated friend, Robert’s life is a masterwork of joyful and deliberate process.
