SUMMERFIELD G. ROBERTS FOUNDATION. The Summerfield G. Roberts Foundation was established in 1990 at the conclusion of the lifetime trust created by Dallas businessman Summerfield G. Roberts for his wife, Annie Lee Warren Roberts. The foundation began with a corpus of about $6 million and provides equal financial assistance in three areas: support of the study, teaching, research, and dissemination of Texas history; scholarships and grants to students and physicians conducting medical research; and scholarships for Texas residents for graduate work in business, commerce, finance, and oil and gas. In 1993 the foundation had awarded more than $330,000 to these program areas.
