The collection contains works by many important 20th century photographers. This gave the University one of the most impressive photography collections in the region.

But Jim and Nan Robertson wanted to do more to keep art at the forefront of education so the couple made another generous gift to APSU that will continue to advance photography and art for years to come. The Robertson’s created an endowment, which will fund two scholarships a year at Austin Peay State University in the area of the visual arts.

There will be a Memorial service held for Nan Robertson on Saturday June 20th, 2015 at the Austin Peay State University Honor Commons Center building starting at 1:00pm.

The APSU Honor Commons Center building is located across from the APSU book store.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Best Friends Animal Society in Kanab, UT, www.bestfriends.org
