FOR INFORMATION REGARDING RUTH ROBERTSON:
In 1992 Ruth Robertson appointed Patricia Hubbard as her literary executor. Hubbard negotiated the transfer of Robertson’s archive to University of Texas at Austin. She recorded Robertson's oral history, and she and Howard Goodman curated an exhibit of Robertson’s photographs that traveled the United States.
While a number of the prints from the exhibition are vintage, the majority were archivally printed from Ruth’s original negatives by Howard Goodman, Photographer of Peekskill, New York.
