AN HISTORIAN who has an association with Lampeter’s university going back 60 years has been conferred a Professor of Practice of the University of Wales Trinity Saint David (UWTSD) in acknowledgement of his academic and research career.

Professor John Morgan-Guy is the University’s historian and has also served as its archivist.

He is an Honorary Research Fellow of the University’s Roderic Bowen Library and Archives.

He has conducted considerable research into the history of the University’s campus in Lampeter, founded in 1822, and is a key member of the team delivering a range of exhibitions about the university’s history, treasures and archives as part of its Bicentenary celebrations.

Born in Cardiff, Professor Morgan-Guy’s association with the University in Lampeter spans 60 years.

He is a former student having commenced his undergraduate studies in History at the then St David’s College in October 1962.

He returned to Lampeter as a part-time lecturer in Church History and as the University archivist in 1997. He also lectured at the then Trinity College Carmarthen.

Professor Morgan-Guy served as an interim Chaplain at the University before he retired at 71 years of age but continues his association with the University’s Roderic Bowen Library and Archives, home to the Special Collections.

Professor Morgan-Guy said: “It is a pleasure and privilege to be made a Professor of Practice at the University. I have a lifelong association with the University’s Lampeter campus in its various guises in the history of education in Wales.”
