Stanley Robins

Class of 1921

Stanley was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 1982. His citation is below:

Stanley G. Robins a native of Crisfield, Maryland entered the preparatory department at Washington College in September 1916. Upon completing his work in the preparatory department he entered the collegiate department and received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in June 1921. He was president of the Student Council in his senior year and as valedictorian of his class he delivered the senior farewell address. In recognition of his all-around activities he was awarded the Philadelphia Alumni Chapter Gold Medal.

He was very active in sports winning varsity letters in football, basketball and baseball all four years. As an athlete he was fast, agile, aggressive and possessed of a determined passion to win, qualities that made him a natural leader. His teammates reacted to his talents by electing him captain of the three varsity sports for two successive years, a distinction no other Washington College athlete holds. In assessing his own abilities Robbie feels that he probably performed best as a football player. The Baltimore Sun named him quarterback on its All Maryland football team in 1920, and as forward on the All Maryland basketball team 1920-21. In baseball he teamed up with Jake Flowers as a double play combination during the 1921 baseball season. Robbie was also interested in boxing and wrestling.

Following, his graduation he entered the University of Maryland Law School. He passed the Maryland Bar in 1923 and returned to Crisfield where he entered his father’s law office. Several years later he moved to Salisbury where he continues his law practice. In 1960 he was elected a Fellow in the American College of Trial Lawyers.

The Washington College Athletic Hall of Fame is proud to include Stanley G. Robins as one of the inductees to the Hall of Fame this 15th of October, 1982.
