Biographical Sketch

Born in London on 20 June 1925, Robin David Steward Higham, the only son of Margaret Anne Stewart and David Higham, an American mother and British father, made visits to the United States with his mother to visit her relatives in Texas and Oklahoma in 1929 and again in 1935. Higham’s mother, born in Baxter Springs, Kansas, and a graduate of the University of Kansas, read extensively and loved to travel. His father, an Oxford graduate, was a successful literary agent in London. Margaret and David met in Constantinople and were married in England in 1923. Higham lived in England until he was 15. He married Barbara Davies 5 August 1950, with whom he had one son and three daughters. In 1954, Higham became a naturalized United States citizen.

Robin Higham received his A.B. cum laude at Harvard in 1950, his M.A. at the Claremont Graduate School in 1953, and his Ph.D. at Harvard in 1957.

An educator, Higham was an instructor at the University of Massachusetts from 1954-1957, an Assistant Professor at the University of North Carolina from 1957-1963, and a Professor of History at Kansas State University beginning in 1963. His career at Kansas State University spanned from 1963-1999.

In a 1998 interview, Higham described himself as a “generalist partly because I have taught 29 different history courses in a wide variety of fields and because what I have written and edited cuts across a good many fields besides aviation, including the impact of technology and warfare on history.” He continued, “I am lucky to have been at Kansas State University, where I could be a historical generalist while teaching undergraduate and graduate students. As a historical generalist who looks at big problems to see how they have been handled, the entire past of humanity interests me.”

Robin Higham was also a prolific writer and editor, having authored and edited 123 works in 282 publications in 6 languages, all of which focus on aviation, military, and geo-political subjects. From the late 1960’s through the 1980’s, he was the editor and co-publisher of several journals including Journal of the West,  Military Affairs, and  Aerospace Historian. In 1977, Higham became the founder and president of Sunflower University Press which published military history books until its closing in 2005.

Recognized as a leading aviation and military historian, Higham held memberships in several aviation and military history organizations. Honors include Social Science Research Council National Security Policy Research Fellow, 1960-1961; Victor Gondos Award, 1983; Samuel Eliot Morison Award, 1986; American Military Institute; and Kansas Governor’s Aviation Honor Award, 2000.

Higham resides in Manhattan, Kansas.

Related Materials

Additional Sources

Additional repositories of Robin Higham materials are located at Kansas State University, Manhattan, Kansas, and Duke University, Durham, North Carolina.

The Kansas State University repository consists of records of several journals for which Higham once served as editor, correspondence with other notable historians, and records and manuscripts from Sunflower Press, for which he served as president. The papers also document his activities in many national and international professional organizations and conferences in the field of military history.

The Duke University repository consists of 10 scrapbooks, the contents of which include images and press clippings, largely featuring German, British, and U.S. aircraft from WWII. One scrapbook contains images of ships. All contents are presumed to have been cut out of newspapers and periodicals. Dr. Higham donated the scrapbooks to the Duke Manuscripts Department in 1963.
