Historian Robin Cutler now lives in New York City but can often be found with her family in California. She's been a program officer at the National Endowment for the Humanities, and for more than a decade she collaborated with scholars, media makers and Native American tribes in Massachusetts, Montana and Washington State to bring extraordinary stories to the public. For several years, she was the Contributing Editor for Film and Media for the American Historical Association's monthly magazine Perspectives.
Robin was also the co-producer of ROANOAK, an Emmy-nominated dramatic series for PBS. Her last book, A Soul on Trial: A Marine Corps Mystery at the Birth of the Twentieth Century (Rowman & Littlefield 2007), is part ghost story, part murder mystery, and part courtroom drama; a "fascinating" true story, it was named a "notable naval book of 2007." The key protagonist, Oregon mother Rosa Brant Sutton, became Dick Wick Hall's mother-in-law in 1911 and was his children's beloved Gram.
Robin has a doctorate in history from Columbia University and taught in universities in New York City for eleven years. Among her most memorable experiences has been the chance to participate in Salome's annual Dick Wick Hall Days parades with each of her daughters.
