Robert J. Tórrez is a native New Mexican. He received his undergraduate and graduate education at New Mexico Highlands University and the University of New Mexico. Robert served as the New Mexico State Historian from 1987 until his retirement in December 2000.
For more than four decades he mined the documentary treasures in our own Spanish, Mexican, and Territorial archives to find material for hundreds of columns published under his “Voices From the Past” byline in Round the Roundhouse. He has also published dozens of scholarly and popular articles in various regional and national publications, and contributed to more than two dozen anthologies, including a recent New Mexico history textbook.
Robert has a special interest in the judicial systems of Spanish and Territorial-era New Mexico, and has published extensively on the topics. He is an award-winning author of six books, including the much-cited Myth of the Hanging Tree: Stories of Crime and Punishment in Territorial New Mexico, and Rio Arriba.
