I have worked for over thirty years in the museum and gallery sector with a collection of history makers and ensuring that their stories are presented for the enjoyment and research of online visitors.
Over a decade ago I co-edited a book called the Complete Illustrated Catalogue of the National Portrait Gallery, London. It contains over 10,000 different portraits of our history makers, and covers the Gallery’s paintings, sculpture and drawings for the most part.
There are always individuals you encounter for the first time and these become an interest and I like to spotlight these.
The selections made within my books add one more voice to the many who are passionate about those individuals who have contributed and are still contributing to the wonderful history of the British Isles, and wish to share these passions with others.
Additionally each day the site presents around 10 British individuals born on this day.
