Johan Vilhelm #Snellman (1806–1881) was an influential philosopher and Finnish statesman ("Father of the Finnish state"). In his 30s he was barred from university employment due to Russian control over new and oppositional thoughts (Finnish movement). He took a position as headmaster for a school in distant Kuopio. There he published polemical periodicals which advocated for developing Finnish into a language of the academics and state. The papers were suppressed, but Snellman didn't relent.
