Professor David Gill‘s UCS Academy Lecture on the contributions of Dr. John Disney to classical antiquities studies filled the house on May 14, with guests coming from Swansea and Cambridge as well as Suffolk. The talk focused on Disney’s work in building his collection, establishing the Fitzwilliam Museum, endowing the first archaeological professorship and giving the field a profile – and  there was also discussion of trains and other Disneys. Beryl Beech of the Suffolk Poetry Society curated a small exhibition of historical documents at the pre-talk reception.
