For avoidance of doubt, reference given within the text below, this is not the really, really famous Arthur Mee:

Entry in Who's Who in Wales, First Edition, 1920

Arthur Mee acted as editor of the first edition of the book Who's Who in Wales in 1920. He included a self-deprecating entry about himself which devoted much space to his father. It read humorously,
MEE, Arthur ("Idris"), Editor "Who's Who in Wales"; b. Aberdeen, Oct. 21, 1860; s. Geo. Samuel Mee and Elizabeth, dau. of James Phillips, a Pembrokeshire farmer. After a brilliant career at Glasgow University, cut short by overwork, Geo. S. Mee (whose father was a Northampton man), became pastor of a Baptist Church at Aberdeen, where his powers soon attracted attention, and are referred to at some length by Sir. Robertson Nicoll in his "Life of James Macdonell." Leaving the ministry for journalism, he edited the Bradford Observer for a time, a paper there, dying in 1876. Intended for the medical profession, his son Arthur Mee saved many lives by becoming a journalist; m. 1888, Claudia, dau. late David Thomas, Llanelly; removed to Cardiff, 1892, and has been ever since connected with the Western Mail in various literary capacities; has dabbled in many things - Astronomy (an observer since 1878), Welsh Antiquities, Genethliacal Astrology, Esperanto, etc.; author of books and brochures on several of these subjects; Member British and French Astronomical Societies; contributor to Knowledge, English Mechanic, B.A.A. Journal and Transactions, and other scientific publications, and of course the Western Mail (one of the oldest contributors to its famous "Wales Day by Day"). At present his leisure is mostly occupied in explaining to enquirers that he is not Arthur Mee of the "Children's Encyclopaedia." Rel. Christian (no Church); Pol. None, Address: Tremynfa, Llanishen, Cardiff.
