    Hi, I came across this page while seeing what information I can find about my grandfather Erskine G. Roberts. He went to school at the Massachusetts institute of Technology where he studied engineering and served as a professor at Howard and Tuskegee University. I came across your page, and can’t help but to notice you have him on your “list of pioneers in education among my kin”. Does that make us family?? I’d love to hear more from you, and more about my grandfather if you have any information to share. Please feel free to contact me via email at
