Alice Marie Roberts Estate
Alice Marie Roberts was raised in the Highland Park area of Los Angeles and was an alumna of Occidental College. Her lifelong enthusiasm for travel and photography started when her father, as a high school graduation gift, took her on a cruise to New Zealand and Australia. She continued to travel extensively, primarily in the southwest United States. Her photographs of the Arizona countryside and desert were published in Arizona Highways Magazine. Alice conducted travel tours to the places she visited, including New Zealand and Australia. She was an avid, astute, and intelligent investor in the stock market. After learning about the opportunities and experiences of a Claremont McKenna College student, she amended her trust prior to her passing in 1998 to provide scholarships and aid to students at CMC. Roger W. Lopez is the attorney and trustee for the Alice Marie Roberts Estate. He and his wife, Melinda, are the parents of Tiffany (CMC ’00) and Jordan (CMC ’03).
