REVIEWS AND COMMENTS ON 'A RHONDDA BOY'

Back

'A charming evocation of the childhood of a 93- year-old Welshman. Son of a miner, Rhondda born and bred, Rhondda educated apart from his degree years at Aberystwyth, Ivor Howells spent all his professional life as teacher and headmaster in Rhondda schools. After graduating he taught for a short time in Llwyncelyn Elementary school before returning to Porth County School as French master, and then becoming Headmaster of Porth Secondary School and Tonypandy Secondary School. In breadth of experience of 40 years in Rhondda grammar schools, he was known to thousands of children. Ivor recalls his memories of Ferryside holidays, and of life before and after the Great War'.
