He was educated at local schools in Bethel and Caernarvon and won a scholarship to the University College of North Wales (UCNW), Bangor, in 1929. Evans received his BSc in chemistry with first class honours in 1932 and studied for a further two years at UCNW to gain his Teachers Training Diploma and his MSc in organic chemistry. In 1934 Evans was awarded the Platt Physiological Scholarship LOS ss Evans's first appointment was at Leeds University, initially as logical chemistry (on the tyrosinase-tyrosine reaction) under H S Raper, while also taking the First and Second M B courses to Department. Following the outbreak of war Evans became Director of to Manchester University. Here he studied for his PhD in physio- improve his knowledge of biology. Evans gained his doctorate in Demonstrator, later as Lecturer, in biochemistry in the Physiology Plasma Production and Serology in the Leeds University-based Regional Department (Director Sir Almroth Wright) . Medical School, Paddington, to work under Professor (later Sir) Alexander collaborate on many joint projects with her husband as well as pursuing ship for four years until 1944 when he moved to St Mary's Hospital Woods, who had gained her doctorate in zoology at Leeds. She was to independent research. They had four children. Evans held the Director- Blood Transfusion Laboratories. In 1942 he married Dr Irene Antice Fleming on the production of diphtheria toxin in the Inoculation C Evans W NCUACS 16/1/90 In 1946 Evans returned to Wales. He was Special Lecturer in biochemistry at the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth, initiating research on the health problems of farm animals associated with certain plants, 1946-51. On the death of G W Robinson Evans was appointed to the Chair of Agricultural Chemistry at UCNW, a position he held until retirement in 1979. During this period he oversaw a considerable expansion of his Department of Agricultural Chemistry into one of Biochemistry and Soil Science. Evans's most important research at UCNW was in two main areas: the elucidation of the biochemistry of the aerobic and anaerobic pathways of the catabolism of aromatic compounds (including agro- chemicals and pesticides) in Nature, and the isolation of the toxic factors in bracken fern causing the poisoning of farm animals - this undertaken in frequent collaboration with his wife, who independently demonstrated that bracken was also carcinogenic. For his outstanding contributions in both fields Evans was elected a Fellow of the Royal Society in 1979, being used as a medium for scientific communication and served as his deep love of his homeland and pride in his native tongue. He Evans was of humble origins; his father worked as a stone-mason in the Dinorwig Slate Quarries. It was a Welsh-speaking environment and Evans did not begin to learn English until about ten years old. realised the importance for the survival of the Welsh language of its Throughout this collection are notes, drafts and letters attesting to Welsh scientist' which he had drafted for it shortly before he died.

Section A, Biographical, is slight but includes a number of autobiographical accounts and the many letters of congratulation Evans received on his election as Fellow of the Royal Society. Section B, Leeds University, comprises a small amount of duplicated teaching material. Section C, University of Wales, consists chiefly of teaching material used by Evans and colleagues at the University College of Wales, Aberystwyth and UCNW, and applications, correspondence and reports relating to the financing of Evans's research through the There are also a number of drafts by Evans to UCNW. Section D, Research, is the largest in the collection. Nearly all aspects of Evans's research are well documented. In addition to notebooks used by Evans as an undergraduate, postgraduate notes and Service, there are extensive sequences of notes on Evans's later and the breakdown of aromatic compounds. There is also material material dating from Evans's wartime service in the Blood Transfusion research at Aberystwyth and Bangor on pasture plants, bracken toxicity 1970s and early 1980s. on the history of biochemistry in Wales with particular reference of wattle tannins. relating to a commercially funded research project on the degradation W C Evans NCUACS 16/1/90 Section E, Publications, Lectures and Broadcasts, is chiefly drafts by Evans with related correspondence.

There is a complete set of reprints of Evans's publications at E.131. Section F, Visits and Conferences, is a chronological sequence of material relating to visits made and conferences attended by Evans. This short section is dominated by the correspondence and papers from Evans's 1969 visit to the University of Khartoum, principally to give advice on the Department of Biochemistry and Soil Science there. Section G, Correspondence, contains few extended sequences of Much of the correspondence refers to specific research available and for her advice and encouragement, and to Dr G P Parry, University of Bath, for assistance with material in Welsh. We are very grateful to Dr I Antice Evans for making the manuscripts accounts of his current research. references and recommendations including material relating to his work correspondence. problems and many of Evans's letters therefore contain quite detailed The section also includes Evans's Bath 1990 material is retained in family hands. and memorabilia relating to Sir Almroth Wright including a boxed set of This includes Evans's Ph.D thesis calibrated glass capillary pipettes made by Wright.
