About Author

Alice Stopford Green

Alice Stopford Green was an Irish historian and patriot who lived from 30 May 1847 to 28 May 1929. She stayed in London from 1874 to 1877, where she met historian John Richard Green. On June 14, 1877, they married in Chester. He passed away in 1883. As a result of her association with John Francis Taylor, she got interested in Irish history and the nationalist movement in the 1890s. During the Boer Wars, she was outspoken in her opposition to English colonial policy in South Africa, and she supported Roger Casement's Congo Reform campaign. Her book The Making of Ireland and its Undoing, published in 1908, advocated for the subtlety and richness of native Irish civilisation. Stopford Green worked hard to make the concept of Home Rule more appealing to Ulster Unionists.
