Ondřej Přikryl

Plaque and bust of Ondřej Přikryl at Jan Žižka Square, Prostějov. Ondřej Přikryl (November 26, 1862 – December 21, 1936) was a Czech poet, pharmacist and politician. Born in Výšovice near Prostějov, he studied medicine at Charles University in Prague, graduating in 1886. He devoted himself to medicine and eventually began to have political influence. Between 1914 and 1919 he served as the mayor of Prostějov, and in 1902, 1906 and 1913 he was elected to the Moravian Assembly. After World War I, he was elected to the Czechoslovak senate in the 1920 elections, a position which he held until 1925.

Přikryl is also remembered for his cultural impact on Hanakia. He composed many poems and feuilletons written in the Hanakian dialect (belonging to the Central Moravian dialects). Provided by Wikipedia
