Bloomfield : Leonard or Maurice

Hi whoever reads me,

Did you notice that there are two American linguists named Bloomfield?

One is Leonard Bloomfield (April 1, 1887 – April 18, 1949), the author of Language (1933) and founder of American Structuralism. The other is in fact his uncle: Maurice Bloomfield (February 23, 1855 – June 12, 1928). He was an American philologist and Sanskrit scholar.

Best Wishes
