Classroom 3800 in Posvar Hall has been officially dedicated the Robinson Room in honor of the late Roscoe Robinson Jr. (GSPIA ’65), a Pitt alumnus and the first four-star African American general in the U.S. Army.  The classroom showcases photographs and memorabilia from Robinson’s successful military career, including service in the Korean War, the Vietnam War, at the U.S. Army Garrison in Okinawa, Japan, and as a U.S. representative to NATO’s Military Command in Brussels, Belgium.
