Emyr Hymphreys

Monday 5 October, 2020

As a Society we are saddened by the death of literary giant Emyr Humphreys. Last year we celebrated his 100th birthday with a retrospective lecture, now a Cymmrodorion podcast. He was a recipient of our honorary Medal. It’s a great loss to Wales and further afield. We extend our sincere condolences to his family.
