Highlighting Blanche Spencer Robertson

Today’s Women’s History Month feature is Blanche Spencer Robertson, one of the founding members of Historic Salisbury Foundation and Trustee Emerita. Mrs. Robertson and her husband, Julian Robertson, Sr., left a lasting legacy of civic engagement and philanthropy in Salisbury, so much so that her son, Julian Robertson, Jr. established the Blanche and Julian Robertson Foundation. Over the past 20 years, the foundation has awarded more than $36 million in grants to 156 organizations and agencies, whose projects address adult and family issues, education, community health concerns, performance and the visual arts, tutoring and childcare, history and preservation, capital improvement and youth activities.
