Summary/Abstract: In the recent past there has not been such a powerful intellectual person with an emphasised positive national and local charge in the city of Senj as Prof. Ante Glavičić was. As a collaborator in the Senj Museum Society for many years I spoke with him about the many cultural features, plans and visions of the improvement and modernisation of the historical attractions of this city. Every stone, every street or building was for him life in the heart of observing, studying and finding solutions in how to change, enhance and make them available to modern generations. His intentions and visions often crossed objective possibilities, but also the favour of the authoritativefactors in the public and social life of the community in which he worked. But nevertheless despite my opinion, Prof. Glavičić in his scientific and professional work did succeed at a time when many of us his colleagues did not believe, or when we were overcome with dejection. This is witnessed by his results in the many years of work as a scientist, curator of the Senj Museum Society and as director of the Senj City Museum. Here I only wish to mention some of thosewhich relate to his cultural activities and plans which resulted in the better quality of coexistence.
