During the first World War, he served at the American University Experiment Station on the campus of American University in Washington, D.C.

Still in the early phases of his long career as a student and a teacher, Robert is reported in the 1900 census as being "at school". His father was a school teacher, so his apparent passion for education is little surprise.
