Walter Yeeling Evans-Wentz (February 2, 1878 – July 17, 1965) was an anthropologist and writer. As a teenager, he became interested in the teaching of Theosophy. While at Stanford University, he studied with William James and W. B. Yeats. After receiving his B.A. and M.A. from Stanford, he went to Jesus College, Oxford, to study Celtic mythology and folklore.
