He was an alumnus of the École Polytechnique, graduating in 1852. He went on to become professor of mathematics at the Charlemagne lyceum then at the École Centrale, and admissions examiner at his alma mater.

His son, Jacques, was a noted patron of the arts who managed the Paris Opera for thirty years (1914-1944).
