Autumn in Malvern: Colin Jackson on Roget

Autumn in Malvern Festival

Colin Jackson presents an informal talk on Peter Mark Roget MD FRS (1779 – 1869)

This year marks the 150th Anniversary of the death of Roget. Quite apart from his famous Thesaurus of English Words & Phrases, he strongly influenced scientific development during the nineteenth century in the fields of mathematics, chemistry, physiology and anatomy. He died in West Malvern on 12th September 1869 aged ninety and is buried in the churchyard. Flowers will be laid on Roget’s grave in tribute to his extraordinary life.
