Early Life & Career
On May 8, 1937, Robert Hickman Adams was born in Orange, New Jersey, the son of Lois Hickman Adams and Ross Adams. The family relocated to Madison, New Jersey in 1940, and it was there that Carolyn, his younger sister, was born.
In 1947, he went to Madison, Wisconsin, where he had polio at the age of 12 in 1949, but he was able to recover. When his father got a job in Denver in 1952, his family moved to Wheat Ridge, a suburb of the city.
Around the age of 5, his family moved to Colorado from Madison, New Jersey because of his severe bronchial difficulties. They hoped that moving to Colorado would help alleviate those problems. His asthma and allergy issues persisted.
Adams spent many Sunday afternoons with his father walking and hiking through the woods. Playing baseball in the wide fields was one of his favorite pastimes, as was helping his father with construction projects.
He was a Boy Scout and a member of the Methodist church where he and his family were members. Dinosaur National Monument and Rocky Mountain National Park were two of his favorite places to visit with his father as an adult.
In addition, he went horseback riding and mountain climbing. His sister and he began going to the Denver Art Museum more frequently. It wasn’t long before reading became Adams’ favorite pastime. He went hunting for the final time in 1955.
After his freshman year at the University of Colorado, Boulder Adams transferred to the University of Redlands in California and obtained his B.A. in English there in 1959, becoming the first person in the United States to earn a bachelor’s degree in English. In 1965, he completed his Ph.D. studies in English at the University of Southern California.
He met and married Kerstin Mornestam, a native of Sweden while attending Redlands University in 1960. They both shared an interest in the arts and environment. After meeting in high school and dating for a few years, Robert and Kerstin moved to Oregon, where they enjoyed long walks on the beach and quiet evenings with books.

“For most people to be happy, there has to be a person, place, or thing involved in their happiness. In true happiness, there are no things involved. It’s a natural state. You will abide in that state forever.” — Robert Adams
“Deep down in your heart know that all is well. Understand that the Universe is your friend and can never hurt you. It is the substratum of all existence which is love! When you develop a loving consciousness there can be no problems. Love takes care of everything. Love is the same as absolute awareness, pure intelligence, or the power of God. When you have enough love inside, there are truly no problems. Problems only arise when you believe you are separate and lacking love.” — Robert Adams

You have to forget about yourself and expand your consciousness until you become the whole universe. The Reality at the back of the universe is Pure Awareness. It has no problems. And you are That.” — Robert Adams
