"AUGUSTUS HENRY KEANE (1833-1912), Irish anthropologist, was born at Cork June 11833. He was educated at Dublin and in Rome for the Roman Catholic priesthood; but he declined to enter the Church, and devoted himself to geographical and ethnological research ( see 1.44 2; 9.9 00; 22.678). He registered and classified almost every known language, and from these data worked out a system of ethnology. He edited Stanford's Compendium of Geography and, besides many papers in the journals of learned societies and in encyclopaedias, published Man, Past and Present (1899); Ethnology (1896 and later editions); The Gold of Ophir (1901), etc. He was professor of Hindustani at University College, London, till 1885. He died Feb. 3 1912.
