SIR DANIEL "LLEUFER" THOMAS
The Welsh magistrate and labor councilman signs his name with a sentiment, dated 1935
Autograph sentiment signed: "Sincerely/Dan Lleufer/1935" in black ink. 3¾x1¾. Sir Daniel "Lleufer" Thomas (1863-1940) was a Welsh stipendiary magistrate. He attended the University of Oxford, which he entered in Oct. 1883 as a non-collegiate student and graduated in 1887 with 3rd class honors in Jurisprudence. It was about this time that he adopted the name 'Lleufer.' After passing the bar, he joined the South Wales circuit. In the meantime he had been appointed assistant commissioner to the royal commission on labor in 1892. When the Welsh land commission was established in March 1893, he became its secretary. For twenty-four years, from May 1909 until his retirement at the age of 70 in 1933, he was stipendiary magistrate for Pontypridd and Rhondda. His advocacy of co-operation led to an interest in housing and town-planning, and he was one of the founders of the Cardiff Workers' Cooperative Garden Village Society, which built the Cardiff suburb of Rhiwbina. He was co-founder (1911) and president of the School of Social Service for Wales , and from 1915 to 1919 was president of the Workers' Educational Association. He remained an active member of the councils of the National Museum of Wales and of the University Colleges of Cardiff and Aberystwyth, and was deputy-chancellor of the University of Wales from 1915 to 1917. Toned. Lightly soiled. Edges irregular. Mounting residue on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
