Birthplace: New York
Robert Lamm was a salesman in Leadville. Lamm was born in New York around 1856. Lamm’s activities prior to his arrival in Leadville are not known, however, it is likely that he was engaged in business ventures upon his arrival to the city.  In 1880, he lodged at 449 East Chestnut Street with Judah Levy.  Records indicate that Lamm later moved to 106 East Chestnut Street.  It is possible that Lamm lodged with Levy until he established his own place of residence.
Lamm was a member of Leadville’s B’nai B’rith charter group during November, 1879.  It is not clear when Lamm departed from Leadville, but it appears that Lamm moved back to New York sometime in the mid-1880s. In 1888, Lamm visited Leadville as a traveling representative for A. Levy & Bros. of New York.  The following year, Lamm visited Leadville again and stayed at the Hotel Kitchen on Harrison Avenue.
