Roger Peers, Curator and Secretary of the Dorset Natural History and Archaeological Society 1959 to 1992, volunteer thereafter. Friend of the Dannatts for 50 years. To him, museums should be the home of all the muses. He was co-founder of the Museum Music Society in 1973, encouraged the use of the Museum for all artistic, literary, and dramatic activities, beside the Dorset Collections. The museum attracted more activities, more visitors, more members than there have been before or since, and the collections prospered.
