The Robert B. Hanson Memorial Fund

The Dedham Museum & Archive is saddened by the loss of past director Robert B. Hanson. A serious scholar and preservationist of Dedham’s history, Hanson wrote a number of books on the Town’s history and its citizens during his tenure that are among the most referenced in the Museum’s Archive. We are honored that his family has chosen Dedham Museum & Archive as a beneficiary for donations in his memory.

To contribute, please send a check to The Robert B. Hanson Memorial Fund, Dedham Museum & Archive, P.O. Box 215, Dedham, MA 02027, or click here.  

Donations in Mr. Hanson’s memory will go toward the needs of operating the Archive. Thank you.
