Robert Engel recently retired as historian at Great Camp Sagamore.
He is a great grandson of Richard and Margaret Collins, Sagamore’s first caretakers,
who purchased The Hedges property in 1921 and transformed it from a private camp to a resort.
Robert earned a master’s degree in history museum studies from the
Cooperstown Graduate Program. From there, he researched the art collection at the
Buffalo Bill Historic Center in Wyoming, was assistant curator at the Adirondack Museum,
curator at the Clermont State Historic Site, exhibits coordinator at the New-York Historical Society,
and director of the Bartow-Pell Mansion Museum in the Bronx and the Rensselaer County
Historical Society in Troy. Along the way, he earned a diploma from the Wine & Spirits Education Trust.
Robert grew up in Syracuse and, with his eight siblings, spends as much time as possible at
the home his grandparents built on Blue Mt. Lake. He and his wife Judy split their time between
Manhattan and their 1870s farmhouse on the back side of Gore Mountain.
