    Amongst those in the photo are many members of the Free State government: W.T. Cosgrave; Kevin O'Higgins; Hugh Kennedy; Desmond FitzGerald. The President of the Royal Irish Academy is the chemist Sydney Young (centre front row in gown).
    Nobel Laureate Senator W.B. Yeats is near the back of the group clutching his academic gown.
