"JEREMIAH CURTIN (1835 – 1906) was an American translator and folklorist. He graduated from Harvard College in 1863. In 1864 he went to Russia, where he worked as both a translator and for the U.S. legation. He left Russia in 1877, stayed a year in London, and returned to the United States, where he worked for the Bureau of Ethnology.
His specialties were his work with American Indian languages and Slavic languages.
In addition to publishing collections of fairy tales and folklore and writings about his travels, Curtin translated a number of volumes by Henryk Sienkiewicz." --Wikipedia
