Abstract

Dennis Curry was both a businessman and a geologist. He was Chairman of Currys for many years, a job that still allowed him to spend significant time on scientific research and fossil collecting. His achievements as a scientist were impressive, with more than 120 publications and various awards from the scientific community. His collection, containing in excess of 90000 molluscs, 700 micropalaeontological slides and other material, was donated to the Natural History Museum, London. The collection contains material from all over the world, but mostly from southern England and France. His family have made funds available to ensure proper curation of the collection. The material has been sorted, reboxed and organized, and is available to researchers.
