Born in Llandrygarn, Anglesey in Wales, Sir John Morris-Jones (1864–1929) was a teacher, scholar, and poet who wrote several foundational works on the Welsh language, including A Welsh Grammar, Historical and Comparative. This biography, written in Welsh, not only outlines Morris-Jones’s many to contributions to Welsh academia, but also draws on evidence found in his personal letters to shed new light on his family life.
