Louis Mourier (1933)

Biography

French physician and politician who was Director of Public Assistance in Paris from 1920 to 1938. In this capacity he carried out an active policy of building new hospitals and modernizing obsolete infrastructure in the Paris region. This earned him election to the Academy of Medicine. After leaving his post in 1938, he became a senator. He adopted the "Mourier law" of August 1917 which put fathers with four or more children at the rear of armed conflict and the oldest men to work in arms factories, although the latter were later replaced by foreign workers.

He died on 20 February 1960 in Paris, aged 86.
