Biography

French architect, tradesman and businessman who invented an amphibious vehicle that he sailed between the wars from 1932 as part of his taxi company.

He presented this vehicle to the public in 1932 on the Clain, in Poitiers, then in 1940 on the pond of Secondigny. He filed a patent registered in the United States in 1935. A second, larger prototype was built a few years later. It remained hidden during the Second World War and he restored it for use in 1950 for the feast of the Saint-Paul district. In November 1951, he offered it for use during floods in the Vaucluse.

He made himself famous by trying to endow France with a new constitutional system called the Constitution of the Four Pillars which he created in 1940. He made a model more than a metre high, made up of four pillars supporting the terrestrial globe, thus illustrating his concept. He ran for the presidency of the Republic in 1953. His Constitution was regularly discussed until 1968. That year, with the events of May and June, he returned to prominence by claiming that his Constitution was capable of bringing back peace, stability and prosperity. He was interviewed in April 1973 and appeared on regional television news. He died on 16 September 1974 at age 89.
