C. Warren Robertson

The late C. Warren Robertson was a retired theatre professor and director who had acted in numerous community and college productions, directed over 50 plays, and written a dozen original scripts.

He had served as a professor and theatre director at The University of the South, Texas Woman's University, The University of Southern Mississippi, and East Tennessee State University.
