The University of Wales, Bangor has a rich and compelling history. The story of this seat of learning—from its opening in an eighteenth-century coaching inn in 1884 to a multimillion-pound investment in staff and buildings—is one of heroic struggles, personal endeavor, financial crises, and political unrest. Roberts traces the growth and development of the institution, focusing on the personalities that shaped its direction.

Kenneth O. Morgan, University of Oxford

“David Roberts, registrar of Bangor and a trained historian, has written an admirably lucid, fair-minded account of the one-hundred-twenty-five-year history of his university. It chronicles the major personalities, issues, achievements, and conflicts of these years, with skill, insight and transparent honesty. It deserves a wide readership among everyone concerned with the history of modern Wales.”
