Collection Overview

Biography / History
Robert (Bob) Fenimore Sexton, education advocate, was born in Louisville, Kentucky, to Claude F. Sexton and Jane W. Sexton on January 13, 1942. He was a member of the first graduating class of Waggener High School, where he was the first valedictorian and student body president. He received his bachelor's degree from Yale University and a PhD in history from the University of Washington. Sexton completed his dissertation Kentucky Politics and Society: 1919-1932 in 1971. He was a visiting scholar at Harvard University and the Annenberg Institute for School Reform at Brown University. Also, he was awarded honorary degrees from Berea College, Georgetown College, Bellarmine University and Eastern Kentucky University. After graduate school, Sexton served as a history professor and administrator at the University of Kentucky. He became the executive director of the Prichard Committee for Academic Excellence, a non-profit advocacy group for public education in Kentucky, upon its creation in August 1983.
Sexton's many civic contributions included serving as a member of the board that created the Carnegie Center for Literacy and Learning in Lexington and on the boards of the Kentucky Long-Term Policy Research Center and the New Opportunity School for Women. He was a founder of the Kentucky's Governor's Scholars Program and of the Kentucky Center for Public Issues. His national board service included Editorial Projects in Education (publishers of Education Week and Teacher Magazine), the Education Trust, the Center for Teaching Quality, the Education Commission of the States, and the American Association for Higher Education. He also served on advisory groups for several national foundations.
As an education advocate, Bob gave presentations about progress and reforms in the Kentucky public educational system throughout the country and even spoke before Congress. He also regularly authored and co-authored articles about new approaches in continuing education. Sexton co-authored, with Louis B. Nunn and Lewis Bellardo Jr., The Public Papers of Governor Louie B. Nunn: 1967–1971, published by the University Press of Kentucky in 1975. Sexton's book, Mobilizing Citizens for Better Schools, was published by Teachers College Press at Columbia University in 2004. In 1985, Bob married Pamela Papka. The couple had two children and three step-children, Rebecka Byrne Sexton Robert Byrne Sexton, Ouita Papka Michel, Paige Papka Richardson, and Perry Aaron Papka. Bob died after a battle with cancer in 2010.
