Whitley Stokes (1830-1909), lawyer and Celtic scholar, qualified as a barrister in 1855 and worked in a legal capacity in India from 1862 to 1882. He is most famous, however, as a Celtic scholar, having studied Irish, Breton and Cornish texts and published numerous works in this field. He obtained many honourary degrees and was a Fellow of the British Academy. Kuno Meyer (1858-1919), of Hamburg, was a Celtic philologist, an accomplished linguist and translator and noted also as a poet. He made the Irish language the great passion of his life, encouraging its regeneration through the learning and maintenance of the tongue and, in 1903, founding a school of Irish studies and scholarship.
