Rowland Wynne is an independent scholar who has a background in physics; his interest in Evan James Williams was kindled by a visit to the Niels Bohr Archive at the University of Copenhagen.

Further Information:

• This is an English language adaptation of a book which was published in Welsh by the same author by UWP, Evan James Williams: Ffisegydd yr Atom.
• The book discusses his career – what he achieved along those he worked with and the places he worked, most importantly the Physics Department at Aberystwyth University – and outlines his scientific service during the war.
• It also looks at the man himself – his upbringing in a Welsh speaking home and community in Ceredigion - through the accounts given by those who knew him.
