Name of creator
Dr Emyr Wyn Jones was born in Waunfawr, Caernarfonshire, on 23 May 1907. He was educated at the County School, Caernarfon, and later studied Medicine at the University of Liverpool. He spent most of his professional life as a cardiologist in Liverpool, but made his home in Llansannan, and on retirement moved to Rhiw on the Llyn Peninsula. His contact with Wales - its people, culture and history - remained strong throughout. He wrote extensively on medical, historic and literary topics and served on many national bodies, including the British Cardiac Society, the Welsh Language Medical Society, the National Library and the National Museum of Wales, and also served on the council of the Welsh College of Medicine in Cardiff and as President of the Court of the National Eisteddfod. For his services to Welsh culture he was awarded the honorary degree of LLB of the University of Wales. He died 14 January 1999.
