RIP Robert Earle

Robert Earle, longtime host of G.E.'s College Bowl has died.

At this point I can't find much coverage of this at all, so I'm including a link to Wikipedia. If someone finds a proper obit, please include the link

Here you are, Wayne

Robert Earle | 1926 - 2019

There's also a New York Times obit but I don't want to deal with the firewall.

It's odd what impressions we hang on to as little kids. As a very, very young kid, I was fascinated that his middle name began with a Q. Maybe because I couldn't understand what any of the questions were about!

I do believe you are thinking of Robert Q. Lewis.
