Bob sings 2nd tenor with the group and plays a nylon-stringed guitar finger-style. Aside from a 6-month stint in the US Army in 1962-63, he has been with The Highwaymen from Day One.

Bob was born in Mystic, Connecticut and has been a sailor since childhood. He has been an active athlete all his life, a member of the Wesleyan track team and hockey player in college, and a marathon runner later in life.

In 1964 Bob entered Harvard Law School and has since used his degree as a trust officer at several banks headquartered in Providence, RI. He currently is a Vice President of the Bank of America.

Bob and Gwyneth McDonald. Really nice right-hand position for classical guitar! Now, if the big guy would just let me show him how it's done . . .
