Jackie (1927) Robinson (from the 1948 "Round-Up")


American Baptist pastor, theologian and college basketball player who won a Gold medal at the 1948 Summer Olympics, he was nicknamed "Jack" or "Jackie".

Robinson was a graduate of Baylor University in Waco Texas. An All-American basketball player, 1946–1948, while at Baylor University, he was awarded the Jack Dempsey outstanding athlete award in 1947.

He won a gold medal as an outstanding guard on the 1948 Olympic basketball team in London. During the Olympics he was among a group of athletes who went to Buckingham Palace and were formally presented to the King, the Queen and the then Queen Mother. Subsequently the BBC broadcast his recollections of the event which included informal meetings with the Princesses Margaret and Elizabeth and later an extended informal conversation with the King during which Robinson corrected the King's misapprehension as to the relative statures of California and Texas. A recording is still extant.

Between 1953 and 1974, Robinson was minister of First Baptist Church of Augusta, a church of some 3,600 members, where the Southern Baptist Convention was organized in 1845.

Jackie Robinson died on 8 February 2022 at the age of 94 in Augusta, Georgia.
