List of Old Norse and Scandinavian Scholars Born Before 1900

This article contains a list of Old Norse and Scandinavian scholars born before 1900 combined. The two studies are closely related as Norway is part of Scandinavia, and neither of them had a very long list of people. Due to these two reasons, I have included them both in this article.
