Robert Williamson Tunstall (December 18, 1851 in Norfolk, Virginia – November 20, 1917)[1] was a member of the Claribel Club in its first (1873-1874) season. Attending the University of Virginia in 1871, 1872, and 1873, he was listed as a merchant in Baltimore, Maryland in 1878.[2] He and his brother William Brooke Tunstall were children of Robert Baylor Tunstall (1818–1883), a prominent physician in Norfolk.[3]

Tunstall subsequently taught at various schools around the south, becoming principal of the Norfolk Academy from 1892 to 1900, and subsequently served as professor of Latin and Greek at the Jacob Tome Institute of Port Deposit, Maryland. He authored several texts on Cicero and other ancient subjects, and was a member of Phi Beta Kappa.[4]
