Philip Duncan (1772-1863) was for many years (1826-1855) Keeper of the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford. In addition to promoting physical science and mathematics to a position of academic respectability at Oxford, he was largely responsible for establishing, at both Oxford and Bath, a savings bank and a society for the suppression of mendicity.
