Edith Danson

Collector associated with the Antiquities collections

Wife of Francis Chatillon Danson.

The Danson family archives and collection of antiquities was donated to National Museums Liverpool by the Executors of the Estate of Lieutenant Colonel J.R. Danson, in 1977 (http://www.liverpoolmuseums.org.uk/maritime/archive/collections/maritime-family-archives.aspx). The family’s library which contained a fine collection of early illustrated books was left to Trinity College, Oxford (with 450 volumes of erotica placed on deposit in the Bodleian) and is now kept in the college’s Danson Library (http://www.trinity.ox.ac.uk/library/danson/).
