Robert Grogan (1966-1989)
Bob Grogan was the Public Relations Director at Alfred State College for 23 years. While serving in this position he spent numerous hours helping promote the athletic teams, players, and games.
When he arrived at Alfred State the College offered only six inter-collegiate athletic sports. He started keeping detailed information about the college's basketball and wrestling programs. Many of his books are still used today to keep track of record holders.
With the creation of the Department of Physical Education a few years later, Grogan was given the task to promote all the new programs including softball, track and field, and women's basketball. He was an integral part of producing team programs and brochures used for game promotion and recruiting.
His work in promoting athletics at Alfred State College led to the formation of the Sports Information Director Position.
Grogan retired from Alfred State in 1989. He resides in Canisteo with his wife Judy.
