Doctor S. Saxon Barton of Liverpool was a surgeon and amateur historian who formed a collection of coins of the Plantagenet kings between the two World Wars. Believing that history had been unkind to Richard III, in 1924 he founded ‘The Fellowship of the White Boar’ with the aim of promoting a more balanced view of Richard’s character and deeds. In the 1950s the Fellowship evolved into the Richard III Society which continues to flourish to this day, holding true to Saxon Barton’s original mission.
