Henri Dupuy de Lôme


French naval architect.

He was the son of a naval officer and was educated at the École Polytechnique and ENSTA. He was particularly active during the 1840–1870 period.

After finishing his professional education, he went to England about 1842, and made a thorough study of iron shipbuilding and steam navigation. He wrote a report, subsequently published under the title of "Mémoire sur la construction des bâtiments en Fer" in 1844.

He died on 1 February 1885 in Paris.
