10. Charles Robinson American Legion Post

The membership of this branch at 28 Lytle Street is African American. It is named after Charles Robinson, a World War I soldier who was the first Princetonian to lose his life in the armed services. Before women served in the armed services, they were not able to join the Legion, but instead formed auxiliary clubs.

The black and white photograph shows the Charles William Robinson Post 218 American Legion Drum and Bugle Corps, from the late 1920s or early 1930s. In the background, the Witherspoon School for Colored Children.
