Joseph Entych Kopp (1793–1866)

Kopp, Joseph Entych (kop). A Swiss historian and poet; born at Beromünster, 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 wrote also four volumes of dramatic poems (1855–56).
