La Forte, who laid the groundwork for the creation of the University of North Texas Archives. Administrative History:

Robert Sherman La Forte was born on September 8, 1933 in Frontenac, Kansas as the second child of Modest Nathaniel La Forte and Josephine Ann La Forte [née Slapsak].  He grew up and went to school in Frontenac along-side his sister Rose Josephine La Forte [later to become Mrs. Alai].  By May 24, 1951, he had graduated from Frontenac High school.

Following that, throughout the combined years of August 1952 to May 1954 and January 1957 to February 1958, La Forte went to school at the Kansas State Teachers College where he later received a Bachelor’s of Science in Education.  During the time between the above listed dates, from 1955 to 1957, La Forte served in the U.S. Army were he attained the rank of Specialist Third-Class.  In addition to his time spent at school and in military service, La Forte also married Margaret Ann Colegrove in 1954, had his first son Mark Francis La Forte in 1955, and then in 1958, La Forte divorced his first wife.

After that portion of his life, Robert La Forte went on to the Kansas State College of Pittsburg (September 1958 to August 1959) where he earned a Master’s of Science in History followed by a Doctorate of Philosophy in History from the University of Kansas in Lawrence (September 1959 to August 1964).  In 1959, he also married his second wife, Frances Ann Crain, and later had two sons with her, Geoffrey Louis La Forte in 1963 and Russell Andre La Forte in 1965.

His educational background also includes receiving a Master’s in Library Science from the University of Texas at Austin after taking classes there from June 1967 to August 1968.

Beyond spending most of his time in Higher Education earning different degrees, La Forte also worked in various institutes of higher learning.  From 1959 to 1962, he taught Western Civilization at the University of Kansas and then from 1961 through 1964, he taught History.  After his time spent there, La Forte went on to teach History at the East Texas State University from 1964 to 1967 and then in 1968, he began teaching History at the North Texas State University (NTSU).

While employed at the NTSU (and later known to as the University of North Texas), Robert La Forte took part in numerous instructional, scholarly, professional, and community service activities.   He served as Chair of the History Department and on several university committees until his retirement in 1998.  He helped to establish the UNT Archives in 1975 and even co-wrote several books: Remembering Pearl Harbor: Eyewitness Accounts by U.S. Military Men and Women, Building the Death Railway: The Ordeal of American POWs in Burma, 1942-45, With Only the Will to Live: Accounts of Americans in Japanese Prison Camps, 1941-45, and Down the Corridor of Years: A Centennial History of the University of North Texas in Photographs, 1890-1990.  After his retirement from UNT, La Forte donated a collection of hundreds of books to the UNT Archives regarding World War II, mostly by and about prisoners of war.  In addition to all of this, La Forte also served on several City of Denton committees and in various other organizations.

Robert S. La Forte died at the age of 80 on July 11, 2014 after a long battle with cancer.
