Glanmor Williams, by dint of intellectual brilliance, far-sighted vision, and exceptional personal charm, achieved towering eminence in the field of Welsh historical studies. Few Welsh scholars in the modern era have served their profession, university, and country as admirably as him, and the flourishing condition of Welsh historical studies during the last half century is in considerable measure attributable to his influence. Yet, in spite of his unrivalled standing as a Welsh historian and the weight of honours he accumulated over the years, Williams remained unspoilt by his academic successes and public achievements.
