Summary/Abstract: In the search for historical information about the main character of Senj’s Uskoks epopee Ivan Vlatković (Ivo Senjanin) the author Mijatović travelled to Senj at the end of 1969 and then met Ante Glavičić, the director of the Centre for Culture and Education of the Municipality of Senj, and the Senj City Museum and editor of the Senj Almanac. Their then chance meeting, in the 1980s turned into a collaboration in the research and presentation of the Senj Uskok issues in scientific, cultural and events programme which Glavičić organised: 450th anniversary of the arrival of the Klis Uskoks in Senj (1537 – 1987) and the 120th anniversary of the Senj ShippingSociety and steamship industry (1867 – 1987) 23rd – 24th July 1987; Meeting of publishers of epic poems and students of the oral literature of Croatia 21st – 22nd July 1989; the Significance of Senj to Croatia at the crossroads of 15th and 16th centuries 7th – 8th December 1990; the Revitalisation of the Ožegovićianum Castle in Senj 20th October 1995; the Editorial policy of the Senj Almanac, at the occasion of the 30th anniversary of its launch (1965-1995); 300th anniversary of the birth of the Senj poet Mateša Kuhačević (1697– 1997) 21st June 1997. Over the following years the collaboration between Glavičić and the author Mijatović was frequent and periodical, depending on the occasion, but also quite intense. Glavičić continuously expressed himself as an archaeologist, historical researcher and museumist, an excellent organiser of scientific-academic and cultural-events programmes and as the competent editor of the Senj Almanac for which the president of the Republic of Croatia Dr. Franjo Tuđman honoured him with the Order of DanicaHrvatska with the face of Marko Marulić.
