Robert C. Lambert

Robert C. Lambert was born in New York City on September 11, 1919. He owned an electronics business, working especially as a television repairman, and lived with his wife Patricia in New Rochelle, New York. He enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1941.

Bob Lambert was a charter subscriber to the Mineralogical Record in 1970. He assembled a mineral collection of over 600 specimens chosen primarily for their aesthetics, in miniature to small cabinet sizes and a few that were larger. His collection was displayed in his home, in wall-mounted eye-level cases, explaining his preference for specimens that would stand up straight. His sources for fine specimens in the 1970s included Miriam and Julius Zweibel, Norm Pellman, Lawrence Conklin and (later) Stuart Wilensky and John Betts, among others. His mineral collection was rich in specimens from Tsumeb, Bisbee, England and Mexico, as well as newer finds from China and other famous localities worldwide.

He died April 24, 2008 in New Rochelle. New York mineral dealer John Betts handled the sale of his collection.
