Biographical / Historical

Charles William Robinson was an attorney who practiced in Portland, Oregon. He wrote scripts for the radio program "The Mighty Meek." The program focused on stories that celebrated those people who are otherwise unnoticed in the world, "whose name may appear in the newspaper twice in their lifetime - once in the birth register and in the obituary," yet who are glorious "meek who shall inherit the earth." The program was broadcast over radio station KOIN in Portland, Oregon. Robinson also corresponded with Wayne Morse.
