In this film for the RISD Archives Oral History Project, Professor Robert Hamilton (1917-2004) is interviewed by alumna Bunny (Barbara) Harvey who studied with Hamilton and received her RISD Bachelor's of Fine Arts and Master's of Fine Arts degrees in Painting in 1967 and 1972. Professor Hamilton studied Painting at RISD, graduating in 1939, and continued his studies at the Art Students League of New York for one year in 1940. Hamilton served in the Air Force from 1943-1945 during World War II, and following the war returned to RISD to receive his Bachelor's of Fine Arts degree (1947) and to teach in the Painting Department from 1948 until he retired in 1981.
