a poet to remember

The National Library of Wales :: Dictionary of Welsh Biography: "WATKINS, VERNON [PHILLIPS] (1906-1967), poet; b. 27 June 1906, at Maesteg, Glam., only son and second child of William Watkins (a native of Taff's Well), manager of Lloyd's Bank, and Sarah Watkins (née Phillips) of Sarnau, Carms. Before Vernon was six the family had moved to Bridgend, to Llanelli and finally to Swansea."

"The Welsh Biography Online presents the lives of eminent Welsh people who died before 1971 and have made a significant contribution to Welsh life. It is an electronic version of the volumes published by the Honourable Society of Cymmrodorion.

This is the first phase of an exciting project to enhance and develop the Welsh Biography Online website."
