Stuart Norman Robinson

Stuart Norman Robinson, a longtime literary agent, died Monday of natural causes at his home in Los Angeles. He was 64.

Robinson, a native of Brookline, Mass., became a literary agent in 1962 and worked at several agencies before partnering with Bernard Weintraub to form Robinson/Weintraub & Associates in 1969.

In 1993 he became a founding partner in the Paradigm Agency, where he represented novelists, film and TV writers, directors and producers.

A lifelong sports enthusiast, Robinson became part-owner of several minor league baseball teams and racehorses.

Robinson is survived by four children, two grandchildren and a sister.

Services will be held 4 p.m. Thursday at Mount Sinai Mortuary, Forest Lawn, Burbank.

In lieu of flowers, family suggests donations in his name be made to the Special Olympics, American Heart Association or the American Cancer Society.
