A Swiss historian and poet; born at Beromunster, Luzern, April 25, 1793; died at Luzern, Oct. 25, 1866. The first to apply the scientific method of studying history in Switzerland, to him we owe our modern views of old Swiss legends, especially of that of William Tell. His chief work was "History of the Allied Leagues" (1882). He has been called the "Niebuhr of Switzerland". He wrote also four volumes of dramatic poems (1855-56).
