Edwin Rutherford started work as Museum Curator of the Royal Scots Dragoon Guards Museum today.
Edwin is an experienced museum professional and was previously the Museum Manager at the Devil’s Porridge Museum in Eastriggs, Dumfries and Galloway. Edwin also worked as the Keeper of Social History at Tullie House Museum in Cumbria and has held other museum positions at Hull Museum Service and National Museums Scotland. He was made an Associate of the Museums Association in 2013 and a Winfield Fellow of the United States Embassy in 2015.
Originally from Northumberland, Edwin now resides in Carlisle with his young family. He is also studying a part-time distance learning PhD at the University of Liverpool. Edwin is now looking forward to immersing himself in the fine history and traditions of the Royal Scottish Dragoon Guards. It is Edwin’s aim to utilise the Regiment’s ‘Cavalry Spirit’ to take the museum forward by using the museum’s outstanding regimental collections which are indeed Second to None.
