From Monmouth College, Illinois Festschrift in honor of Charles Speel, 1997:

Robert Emanuel Gamer, MC’60, was a student advisee of mine at Monmouth. His father, Carl Wesley Gamer, was head of the Department of Government. His mother, Alice, was a scholar and an artist. Bob was an outstanding student, active in several student groups. His post-college graduate studies were pursued at Brown University where he was elected to Phi Beta Kappa and earned a Ph.D degree in Political Science in 1965.

Bob inherited from his parents a lively and caring concern for the welfare of others, both in America and abroad, especially for the "have nots" of the world. His early college level teaching was done at the University of Singapore. In 1968 he joined the faculty of the University of Missouri at Kansas City, where he is currently emeritus professor of political science. He is the author of numerous books and articles, including The Developing Nations: A Comparative Perspect'ive (1976), Governments and Politics in a Changing World (1994), and '"Understanding Contemporary China (4th ed., 2012)

Bob has been called upon to return to Monmouth to speak to convocations and classes, especially about the roles of government agencies and private groups in bringing aid to needy people. Bob is an able and productive scholar, a congenial and enthusiastic speaker, a warm and highly respected friend, and a much admired alumnus of Monmouth College.
