English all-rounder mathematician who committed suicide from mental illness supposedly brought on by overwork.

His second name starts with an uppercase i, not a lowercase L. Sources vary, and mistakes do exist.

Currently it is unfortunately fashionable to use sans-serif fonts, which makes it impossible to distinguishing between the two letters.
