General note

Rev. Norman MacLeod (1745-1824) of Mull and Glasgow, was greatly involved with efforts to increase literacy among Gaels. Together with Rev. Dewar he produced "A Dictionary of the Scottish Gaelic Language". He earned the sobriquet Caraid nan Gàidheal (Friend of the Gaels) for his efforts to help Gaels during successive potato famines. MacLeod's works became the inspiration for Boyd's Nova Scotia publications, beginning with An Cuairtear Og Gaelach and The Casket.

General note

Author, Eachann MacDhughaill (1880-1954), was born on the island of Coll and moved to Glasgow as a young man. He was a prolific writer of Gaelic prose, poetry and essay as well as editing several collections of poetry. In 1936, we won the Bardic Crown a the National Mod. His activism with An Comunn Gàidhealach led the society to appoint him honorary "father" of the Gaelic youth group, Comunn na h-Oigridh.
