Pueblo County, Colorado
ARTHUR L. ROBISON
Contributed by Karen Mitchell.
Arthur L. Robison, manager at Pueblo for the Colorado Live Stock & Loan
Company, in which connection he is controlling important business interests, is
a native of Crawford county, Kansas. He was born in the year 1880, a son of
Frank Charles and Clara (Potter) Robison. The family arrived in Colorado in
1890, settlement being made in Colorado Springs, but the father is now deceased.
Arthur L. Robison was educated in the public schools and in the high school
of Colorado Springs, Colorado, after which he attended business college at
Colorado Springs and thus further qualified for life's practical and responsible
duties. In his youthful days he became identified with the cattle industry,
first as a cowboy, in the employ of the Alfalfa Land & Cattle Company, and the
Riley Lennord Cattle Company and John H. Riley. He began work at a wage of but
twenty dollars per month, but his capability and trustworthiness led to frequent
promotions until he was receiving one hundred and fifty dollars per month. For a
time he was with the George Cheesman Company and afterward with Haley. Harris &
Company, but was ambitious to engage in business on his own account and saved
his earnings until this course was possible. He had a one-third interest in the
business with Haley, Harrris & Company in New Mexico and he has had cattle
experience in many of the western and southwestern states. He has occupied his
present position as manager with the Colorado Live Stock & Loan Company in the
Pueblo office since October, 1917. This company is extensively engaged in buying
and selling cattle and loaning money on cattle and Mr. Robison's marked ability
in this direction led to his selection for the present important position which
he now fills. There is nothing connected with the cattle interests of the west
with which he is not familiar, having gained comprehensive knowledge from the
time when he went upon the range as a cowboy. His company operates quite
extensively in New Mexico and Arizona, necessitating Mr. Robison making frequent
trips to that section of the country.
In 1915 Mr. Robison was united in marriage to Miss Tressa Sullivan, of
Fountain, and they now have one daughter, Helen. In politics Mr. Robison
maintains an independent course, voting for man, above party. On many questions
of citizenship he takes an advanced stand, supporting measures and movements
which be believes will be of the greatest possible public benefit. He belongs to
the Old Timers' Cowboys' Association and is interested in all those things which
have to do with the olden days but has ever maintained a spirit of the utmost
progressiveness in relation to affairs of the present.
