The National Museum of Bermuda became the repository of a bronze bust of Sir William Stephenson, the Man called ‘Intrepid’, on April 27th, 2016. Sir William, as the Director of British Security Coordination (BSC) during the Second World War, had established the customs security operations in Bermuda at the Hamilton Princess Hotel.
The unveiling and dedication ceremony followed the format of the earlier events in France, England, and The United States. Elizabeth Stephenson, Sir William’s daughter, was in attendance.
Dr. Edward Harris, MBE, the Executive Director of the National Museum of Bermuda, had advised that the bronze of Sir William would be the centerpiece of a new display about the Second World War. The sculptor, Erin Senko from Winnipeg, had created the art, which was a copy of the bronze at Assiniboine Park in Manitoba’s Hall of Fame.
