Former CJRW CEO Ron Robinson dies at 75

Posted By on Thu, Aug 16, 2018 at 11:09 AM

Former Cranford Johnson Robinson Woods (CJRW) CEO Ron Robinson, 75, for whom the CALS Ron Robinson Theater was named, died Tuesday.

Robinson's collection of sheet music, film posters, and other memorabilia of those industries forms a portion of the Arkansas music history programming at the 325-seat venue. “If Arkansas was included in a piece of music or a film,” the Butler Center for Arkansas Studies’ website reads, “Ron Robinson wanted it represented in his collection.”
