Biographical Note

Bruce Stuart Roberts was born on February 4, 1930, in Mount Vernon, New York. He graduated from New York University with a BS (1951), served in the Air Force (1951-1953), and pursued graduate studies at the University of Florida (1954). His began his career in journalism as a reporter for the Tampa Tribune, Tampa, Florida (1954-1955). He went on to serve as editor and publisher of the Lumberton Post, Lumberton, North Carolina, and the Scottish Chief, Maxton, North Carolina (1956-1958), as a staff photographer for the Charlotte Observer, Charlotte, North Carolina (1959-1961), and the director of photography for the News Journal, Wilmington, Delaware (1962-1963). Roberts free-lanced for 15 years (1963-1978) before joining the staff of Southern Living Magazine as director of photography (1978-1982) and later senior travel photographer (1982-1992). Roberts was named the Southern Photographer of the Year in both 1959 and 1961 and received first place awards in the National Press Photographers Association news pictures competition in 1959, 1960, and 1961. He has written or had his photographs published in over 30 books.


Scope and Contents

The images in this collection chronicle the Southern experience during a significant transitional period in its history: from the early Civil Rights years to the many signs of hope for change embodied in such social programs as Head Start, VISTA, and various rural health initiatives the 1960s and 1970s. Also included are numerous images of the photographer's son David Roberts, who has Down's Syndrome; a photo essay extracted from these was the first such publication on this topic. Roberts photographed most of the prominent politicians and other public figures of his time, including Jim Bakker, Billy Graham, Lyndon Baines Johnson, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, Edmund Muskie, Elvis Presley, Bob Scott, Doc Watson, and Roy Wilkins. Landscapes from the Blue Ridge and Smoky Mountains to the Outer Banks capture the beauty of Roberts' adopted state of North Carolina.

This collection is organized chronologically, then alphabetically by folder title. Some photoprints and articles are filed with the contact sheets due to Roberts' original arrangement of his work. All work is black and white unless otherwise indicated. Slides may be viewed by appointment only; negatives are retricted.
