The audio comes from a record by Gwynfor Evans released after his election victory in Carmarthen in 1966 to become Plaid Cymru's 1st ever MP. Audio - Wren Records, Christopher Davies Ltd, Llandybie, Carmarthenshire. Pictures - from the web and other sources. The following text was written by Islwyn Ffowc Elis and appeared on the sleave of the Record.
GWYNFOR EVANS is President of Plaid Cymru, the Welsh National Party, and is now its first MP for Carmarthen. Born and bred in Barry, Glamorganshire, and a Law graduate of Aberystwyth and Oxford, he returned to the Carmarthenshire of his forebears to start a market garden which helps to provide employment in a rural area. He is married with seven children.
He has written much, and travelled more, to proclaim the message of Welsh freedom in all parts of Wales and beyond. He is immensely respected for his brilliance and integrity and is looked upon by many thousands of his countrymen as the herald of the new Wales.
