Summary
Paper, "John Lipscomb Robinson," written by Sally Phillips in examination of the life of John Lipscomb Robinson (b. 1825), a free black from Cumberland County who became a Virginia state senator and member of the 1867-1868 Virginia Constitutional Convention, also known as the Underwood Convention. Phillips intended that the paper clear up some confusion that exists about Robinson's identity, in part due to his early use of Lipscomb (his mother's last name), before switching to Robinson (his father's last name) in middle age. The paper includes endnotes and a bibliography
