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
