Harvey Roberts
By Bill Bower

I

N THE 1600s a family by the name of Roberts received an invitation from William Penn and settled in the Philadelphia area. Descendants of the Roberts family later settled in what is now known as Roberts Valley, north of Harrisburg. There Daniel Roberts ran a blacksmith shop and also made objects to trade with the Native Americans. A direct descendent, E. Hill Roberts, married Martha Miller, and they had two children, a boy and a girl. The son, Harvey, would eventually become the Deputy Executive Director of the Pennsylvania Game Commission. A firearm and a tomahawk that were made by Daniel Roberts are hanging from the fireplace mantel in the Harvey Roberts’ home. Also on the mantel are two swords, one carried by a member of the Roberts’ family during the War of 1812, and the other carried by Harvey’s father during WWI. Members of the Roberts family have always answered the call

when their country needed them. Harvey was born in Harrisburg and grew up in the area. In 1940, he graduated from William Penn High School, followed by two years at Penn State. His education was interrupted by WWII, when he enlisted in the Merchant Marines. He was sent to King’s Point on Long Island for training. During his time with the Merchant Marines he served aboard the WW Mills, a tanker that belonged to the Pure Oil Company. Most of this time was spent sailing in the Gulf of Mexico and the Dutch West Indies, where the main threat to the shipping lanes was the German submarines. Harvey stayed with the Merchant Marines for 13 months and then returned home to join the army, where he served in the Army’s Navy as the skipper of a tug boat. He was in on the Tacklobam Leyte Landing and also the landing at Liguan Gulf, in Luzon (near the Philippines). His responsibility was to move barges that carried mostly gasoline and ammunition. They would often come under fire from Japanese fighter planes. For service to his country, Harvey received campaign ribbons, two for serving in the Philippines LiberaHARVEY ROBERTS, front row right, was among the first agency biologists trained in the then new science of wildlife management. Others here are, front r o w, l t o r, S t e v e Liscinsky, Bob Snyder; b a c k r o w, W i l m e r Richter, Glenn Bowers, Alan Studholme, Roger Latham and Stan Forbes.
