Robinson, Herbert F., 1865-1956



  • Existence: About 1865 to May 17, 1956

H.F. Robinson served as Adjutant General of Arizona Territory from 1898 to 1902 before moving to New Mexico, where he became an irrigation engineer for the US Indian Bureau. He was with the agency until his retirement in 1931. In addition to his engineering work, he was an avid amateur photographer, a skill he may have learned from his father. Herbert's wife Mary W. Robinson is the co-author of their 1914 publication Lens Studies of Indians and likely collaborated on their photography.
