MR .0. M. EDWARDS. The .following is from "M. A. P. edited by-iur T. P. O'Connor: —"From what I hear irom my Welsh correspondents, poor Tom Ellis will have just the kind of successor he himself would have chosen. Professor O. M. Edwards has certainly had a remarkable :-C,Ireer-an amalgam, so to speak, of intense Welsh nationalism and of the highest Oxford culture. Educated, like Tom Ellis, at the College of Aberystwyth, he like him, mig- ) rated to Oxford, but he had a more prolonged I and a more brilliant career than Mr Ellis;— who had to leave early. A student of I Balliol College, Mr Edwards has carried off nearly every prize that can. be won by the historical student—the urackenbury His- tory Scholarship, the Stanhope, the Lothian, and the Arnold-in addition to the College Shakspearean prize. After he had taken his degree, with first class honours in modern history, Mr Edwards was elected a Fellow ,and Tutor of Lincoln College, which still re- tains his tutorial services. But, notwith- standing his heavy work at Oxford, his heart has always been with his own people, and he :is, perhaps, the chief author of the"Welsh Renaissance. He has established some half- i a-dozen English and Welsh national per- iodicals, 'but found it advisable a few years ago to limit his energies to the Welsh per- iodicals alone; he has edited a large number of Welsh books; has adjudicated at all the important 'Eisteddfods.' Although 'O.M.' has lived the greater part, of very nearly tne last twenty years at Oxford as student and 'don,' he still retains most of the personal characteristics of his countrymen. With clean-shaven round face, both young and old looking, and the student's stoop, he re- presents a striking appearance, and when he spet-lis, it is with the strong accent of the Welshman. More cf a scholar than of a politician, cf a Welshman than a Liberal, he is as popular with the Weish Conservatives as he is with the Liberals. He is essentially a literary m.\n, and has a more effective pea than tongue, both of which he has practi- cally consecrated to the Welsh language and the Welsh people. He isl ooked upon in Wales as the one man who can do for his native country what J. R. Green did for England.
