Éamon De Valera
Born in the United States, De Valera spent most of his life in Ireland, first as a teacher, then a revolutionary and controversial figure in Ireland's 1922 Civil War, then eventually as taoiseach and president of Ireland. Finnegans Wake's allusion to his name in "devil era" (473.08) recalls the Civil War's divisiveness. William Brockman
