Professor Brian Dobson, the late founder of our Society was a source of great inspiration, drive and historical passion all of us involved with the Hadrianic Society. For over 40 years he ran the Society and acted as its patron along with Profs. David Breeze and Val Maxfield. To see more of his life story, see the lucid obituary written by Prof. Breeze from 3rd August 2012, as published in the Independent.
For posterity, we have recently created a wikipedia page for Brian. Follow this link.
