Dr. Daniel Rees M.A., Ph.D.

M, b. 16 April 1865, d. 26 February 1938
Dr. Dan Rees
     Dr. Daniel Rees M.A., Ph.D. was born on 16 April 1865 in Llanfihangel-ar-arth, Carmarthen.1,2 He was the son of John Rees and Anne Davies. Dr. Daniel Rees M.A., Ph.D. studied at the Presbyterian College, Carmarthen, University College of Wales, Aberystwith, University College, London, and Manchester New College, London and Oxford. Graduated in arts at the London University in 1887: proceeded as Hibbert Scholar to Berlin, Oct. 1890: passed the examination for the M.A. degree at the London University in June 1891: and further pursued his studies at Leipzig from Oct. 1891 to Aug. 1892., where he gained his doctorate with a thesis on contemporary English ethics. Between 1896 and 1932 he was headmaster of the County Intermediate School at Cardigan. He married Elizabeth (Bessie) Mary Davies, daughter of Rev. John Davies and Mary A. Jones, on 29 December 1898 in Atcham, Shropshire.3 Dr. Daniel Rees M.A., Ph.D. appears on the census of 1 March 1901 at 3 Belmont, Cardigan. He retired in 1932 and they moved to Hastings from Cardigan and lived at at 12 High Wickham, Hastings.4 He died on 26 February 1938 in Lyons, France, at the age of 72.5,4,6

While travelling an the night express from Paris to Marseilles, Dr. Daniel Rees. of 12, High Wickham, Hastings, died suddenly from heart failure in the early hours or Saturday morning. Dr. Rees, who was 72 years of age, was on his way. with his wife, to Tunis. His death came as a shock to those of his friends who had seen him off at Hastings Station on Friday morning, when he was then apparently in the best of health.
The train was halted at Lyons and the body was taken off and arrangements were made to convey it to Hastings, where a funeral service is to be held to- day (Saturday) at All Saints' Church.
Dr. Rees was a Master of Arts and a Doctor of Philosophy, and before coming to retire at Hastings in 1933 he had been headmaster of Cardigan County School, Wales, for 32 years. During his stay in Hastings, Dr. Rees identified himself with the Twenty Club and the Egyptian Society, and was one of the managers of All Saints' School. Hastings and St Leonards Observer, March 05, 1938


Tribute to the high sense of honour and intellectual gilts of the late Dr. Daniel Rees, whose death was reported last week, comes from Mr. Herbert M. Vaughan of Tenby, a great friend of Dr. Rees and a writer of distinction.
Writing in the "Western Mail," Mr. Vaughan says:- "I was both grieved and shocked to read the notice of the death of my dear friend. Dr. Daniel Rees, late headmaster of the County School at Cardigan. He died suddenly on February 26th in his seventy-second year near Lyons, in France, while touring with his wife, Mrs. Elisabeth Rees. for whom special sympathy will be felt in her grief and loss.
It was, I think, in the summer of 1904, on the occasion of the visit of the Cambrian Archaeological Association to Cardigan, that I first made the acquaintance of Dr. Rees, then headmaster of Cardigan County School. He was of a retiring and modest nature, so that it took some time before I got to realise his high scholarship or to win his intimate friendship. But I do not know anyone for whom I have felt greater affection and respect. The sad news of his death brings back memories of pleasant days long ago in old Tivyside, when Dr. and Mrs. Rees's house, Belmont, in Cardigan became the central point of meeting for their many friends.
Dr. Rees never obtained the academic or educational awards to which he was most certainly entitled by reason of his high sense of honour and his intellectual gifts. He was too modest a man for this pushful world of to-day, which could not appreciate him at his true worth. Yet I am sure many of his old pupils, both men and women, will grieve sincerely, as I do, over his passing and will recall the deep debt they owe to Dan Rees, of Cardigan.
Yes, Dan Rees had a distinguished career in London. Paris and Leipzig; he was a ripe scholar in English, Welsh, French and German literature, yet he never became head of one of our university colleges, nor was he chosen director of education in any of our counties. But he was always happy and contented; fully satisfied with what Cardigan town and district had to bestow. It was only on his retirement from the headmaster-ship of Cardigan that Dr. Rees and his wife retired to live at Hastings."


The following appreciation comes from the Rev. E. Iliff Robson:-
" The passing of Dr. Rees, of High Wickham, deserves more than a brief mention. Though not long resident in Hastings, he was one who came here with a fine spell of work behind him, but still found work before him, whether in educational and literary spheres or in genuine philanthrophy, as evinced by his interest in, and work for, the fishermen. His was a rich and varied training - at University College, London; at Oxford, as Hibbert scholar; Berlin, Leipzig and the Sorbonne. Of his career, Mr. H.M. Vaughan writes eloquently in the Western Mail, but fragments from personal letters will better give the estimate which those who knew him had formed.
One correspondent writes: 'I have always had a deep respect and affection for Dr. Rees ever since I first knew him more than 30 years ago. I admired his unselfish nature, his sweetness of disposition, and his extreme modesty, for he was, I know, a scholar of high repute.'
Another writes: 'He was one to be proud of. Both physically and mentally he towered. Scores of young people will be feeling this week that they are the better for having come under his influence.'
Yet again: 'A rare and beautiful character. One had only to know him to become his devoted friend and admirer.'
And another: 'There was not one blot upon his escutcheon: he always played the game, and well they called him "The beloved headmaster.'"
His epitaph may well be adapted from a well-known Oxford epitaph, ' In Siciliam profectus migravit in coelum' - ' he set out for Sicily, but went instead to Paradise.'
'Hastings has lost in him a good citizen.'

Flags on the fishing boats were flown at half-mast as a mark of respect on Saturday, when the funeral service was held at All Saints' Church. The Rev. P Bickford Heard officiated, assisted by the Rev. A W. Van den Bergh and Canon Nance.
The body had been cremated at Lyons.
The chief mourners were Mrs. Rees (widow), Capt. and Mrs. Vivian Rees (son and daughter-in-law), Mrs. F. Gower
(sister). Mr. David Rees (brother), and Miss Florence E. Davis (sister-in-law). Others present in the church were Colonel and Mrs. E.P. Sewell, Mrs. Andrews, Miss Hilda Ward, Mr. and Mrs. Thornley, Mr. and Mrs. J.O. Huntrods. Mr. J.W. Huntrods. Mr. Anthony Belt and Mrs. Belt. Professor Bompas Smith, Mr. William Slade, Miss Child, Mrs. Jack Pritchard, Miss Price, Mr. E. Tapp, Miss Baumgartner, Miss Gwyther, Miss M. Grahame. Capt. A. J. Parkin, Miss Clarke, Mr. and Mrs. Douglas Byard, Mrs. Plowright. Lt-Col. C.H. Young. J. P., Mr. E. Stanger, Capt. A.H. Dawson, Councillor A.O.R Hickes, Capt. T. Dannreuther (representing the Twenty Club). Mr. and Mrs. N. Scarlyn Wilson, Mrs. Bickford Heard, Dr. T.N. Kilner, Mrs Kilner, Miss Reed, Mr. W. Alexander, Dr. Charnock Smith, Miss Furniss, Miss Fletcher, Miss Atter and Miss Chick.
A number of local fishermen were also present.
Instead of flowers a number of friends sent donations, which were sent to the Hastings Fishermens Protection Society, for which Dr. Rees was a keen worker.
The funeral arrangements were ably conducted bv Messrs. J. Vine and Son. 46, High-street, Hastings.
