Description

Hyde was an academic, linguist and scholar of the Irish language. He founded the Gaelic League, was professor of Modern Irish in university College, Dublin, a Senator of the Free State and served as the first official President of Ireland from 1938-45. John Butler Yeats did two portraits of Hyde, one now in the Hugh Lane Municipal Gallery, Dublin, the other in the National Gallery of Ireland, Dublin. 

William G. Fay and his brother Frank, were both brilliant actors of their day and stage producers. Willam Butler Yeats saw them as the answer to the struggling Irish National Theatre and out of the 'W. G. Fay's Irish National Dramatic Company' would emerge the Abbey Theatre with WBY at its centre.
