Sir Rhys Hopkin Morris (1888-1956), politician, from Maesteg, Glamorgan, was Independent Liberal MP for Cardiganshire from 1923 until 1932, and Liberal MP for Carmarthenshire between 1945 and 1957. He studied philosophy at the University of North Wales, Bangor. In 1920 he was called to the Bar at the Middle Temple, before joining the Oxford and South Wales Circuit.

In 1936, he became the first Regional Director of the BBC in Wales. He was a member of a Parliamentary Delegation to Tanganyika, 1928, and the UK Royal Commission on the Palestine Disturbances, 1929.
