Biographical Note

Robert Battey Troutman, Jr. was born February 20, 1918. He attended Harvard Law School, where he shared a room with Joseph Kennedy, Jr. After law school he joined his father's firm in Atlanta: Spalding, Sibley, Troutman, and Brock (now King and Spalding), staying until 1956 when he left to work on real estate ventures. Troutman served as John F. Kennedy's Southern campaign manager during the 1960 Presidential election, after which he was appointed chairman of the Committee on Equal Employment Opportunity. As chairman, Troutman spearheaded the Plan for Progress, a program whose goal was to fight widespread job discrimination by persuading major US corporations to hire Black Americans.Troutman died July 30, 1991 at the age of 73.
