Name of creator
Dr Theodore White (b. 1912) was a scientific and development consultant. He studied for honours degrees and a postgraduate qualification at the University of Wales, Aberystwyth, 1935-1939, and apparently he spent part of his career as an industrial chemist, specialising in wood extraction products, 1964-1975. He appeared to have taken some interest in the history of his family who, on his mother's side, originated from the Rhondda.
