Earl Bertrand Russell, writer with a connection to Wales (South Wales, Monmouthshi)
Earl Bertrand RussellPhilosopher, mathematician and the Nobel Prize for Literature in 1950. Russell is one of the most highly regarded academics of the 20th century. Helped perhaps by a great sense of humor, he popularized the mathematics and proposed many ground breaking theories.
As significant as they are, his theories were not entirely responsible for his reputation. He felt free to comment at an international level on matters as diverse as the Cold War, Kennedy's assassination and the Vietnam War. So much so, that at the hight of his reputation many of his devout followers regarded him as a guru.
Connection: Born in Trelleck, Monmouthshire, South Wales.
