Price-Heywood, Brian

English agronomist; registered as a member of the British Esperanto Association in 1925. Price-Heywood worked in Berlin helping refugees for the Society of Friends (Quakers), later as an agronomist on the island of Pemba, north of Zanzibar. He collaborated with the periodicals International Language and Literatura Mondo. Price-Heywood drowned with a torpedoed ship. He is commemorated with a several-page biography by O. Greenwood in Quaker Encounters (1978). English-language articles by Price- Heywood appear in The Wayfarer and The Friend, and English poems in Well under Thirty, an Anthology (1931) by K.R.C. Sturmer (q.v.).

Price-Heywood was a poet of promise - one of the 12 poets featured in the anthology Dekdu Poetoj (1934). Kálmán Kalocsay (q.v.) wrote (GpSE, p. 179) that he was a poet of the details of nature, of quickly wilting, yet by their momentariness eternally valid moods, of the little joys of life, thus in fact, an artist of miniatures, who nevertheless longed to write some kind of epic poem re-echoing life (epopeo viv-reeĥa).'
