Colville Petty, O.B.E. is Anguilla’s historian and the curator of the island’s Heritage Museum. Mr. Petty has collected and preserved much of the island’s history, from the Amerindian peoples through the colonial settlers to last year’s Calypso King’s photo. His collection is extensive and unique, and his personal accounts, enthusiastic interest and vast knowledge of Anguilla make a visit to his museum a fascinating and worthwhile experience.
