Sir David Hughes Parry was one of the most renowned and influential Welsh jurists of the twentieth century. Drawing from a range of primary and secondary sources, including archival material and unpublished personal papers, this book provides a holistic assessment of his career as a lawyer, legal scholar, university policy maker, and public servant. It also considers his distinctive and sometimes controversial contribution to Welsh life, and in particular, its public institutions and the Welsh language and culture.
