Dr Philip Saunders
Philip Saunders had a long career as a senior archivist for the Cambridgeshire County Council before joining the Cambridge Centre for Christianity Worldwide in January 2015. Philip has a strong commitment to records preservation, both in the sense of extending collections and ensuring best practices for records in storage and use. He is keen on raising awareness of the value of archives by record publication and by outreach talks and exhibitions.
His interests include contributions to the Oxford Dictionary of National Biography on the Huntingdonshire antiquaries Benjamin Hutchinson (1733-1804) and Robert Fox (1798-1843), the latter being the brother-in-law of Richard Taylor, early missionary to New Zealand and probably, like Henry Martyn, a disciple of Charles Simeon.
