About the Author:

"William Jenkyn Thomas was the first Head Master of the Aberdare Intermediate School. He was born in Llangywer on the banks of Llyn Tegid, Merionethshire on 5th July 1870 but when he was a child, the family moved a few miles down the lake to Plas Madog, Llanuwchllyn.

He attended Friars School, Bangor (established in 1557, this was one of the ancient endowed Welsh grammar schools), and went up to Cambridge in 1888, having matriculated as a sizar. He graduated with a B.A. in the classical tripos eventually attaining his M.A. in 1896.

He was a lecturer at the university in Bangor from 1891 to 1896, and took up his post in Aberdare in 1896 at the age of 26 which is quite remarkable by present day conventions. In 1905, he was appointed headmaster at Hackney Downs School in London, remaining in this post until his retirement in 1935. He was married to Marian Dixon and had two sons. His wife died in 1936; WJT outlived her by twenty-three years."
