DR. IVOR THOMAS DR. !MR THOMAS SUDDEN DEATH OF INSPECTOR I i OF SCHOOLS Swansea i.% the poorer to-day for the of Dr. Ivor Thomas, H.M. Inspector of Schools for the (ii-strict--and not only Swansea, but the whole world of science. He did in his 41st year after an illness of only two days' duration, at his resi- dence in Cromwell-street, Swansea, about three o'clock on Saturday afternoon. We understand Miac lus demise was due to internal hemorrhage. He had been a great sufferer lor years, but he bore his jllnesti with a fortitude that commanded the admiration of all who knew the nature of his 'malady. He was engaged in his duties up to Thursday afternoon, and his last public appearance was at St. Helen's Infants' School on Tuesday afternoon, where lie spoke at the cere- Imony of the unveiling of a mural tablet to the memory of Miss Micliell. Upon that occasion he delivered a speech of five minutes' duration, which'all who heard it declared wu." a 'masterpiece of expres- sion and emotion. Thoc-c who knew him most intimately will be inclined to agree with the words oi the dead doctor himself at this cere- n-oiiy-tliat reverent silence best befits appreciation of such a life. Ho had reached the highest rung of the educational ladder, but his greateet friends were the humble people whom he knew when a boy in the Swansea Valley, and the man whom he thought the most of was the village schoolmaster, Mr. Thomas, of Glanamman, who did 60 much to encourage him in his ambitious. lIe was a native of Glanamman, and he was trained at the Board Schools there, under Mr. Thomas, as a pupil teacher. After that he served for a time as assistant master in Brynmawr County Sch<x>l; then, sigh- ing for bigger worlds to conquer, ho do- cided upon a. big stop of completing his education in Germany. He went to Mar- burg University, and succeeded in obtain- ing his Ph.D., returni ng to this country to join the Geological Survey in London. For bjiJ research work in this department of science the degree of D.Se. was con- ferred upon him by the University of Wales. He published several books upon the geology of this district, which are re- garded as standard works. 1Es publica- tions also rank in the Government Memoirs series referring' to geological survey work. Six yeare ago he was appointed inspec- ¡ tor of schools for this district. He (tid I his new work with a quietness that might have deceived superficial onlookers, but those with ediicational knowledge knew how thorough was his grip of the impor- tant task he had undertaken. He was one of the meet, modest of men; indeed, his modesty was such a developed trait I that hundreds who came in contact with him oould not bave realised the extent of his attainments and the greatness of his nature. He was a great Welsh patriot, and the love of his native land, and in particular of the romantic region from which he sprang the Black Mountains grew stronger as he grew older. To him there was no district in the world like Mynydd Du.
