French astronomer, official founder and first director of the Algier Observatory, appointed in 1880. In 1885 the observatory was relocated to La Bouzareah, the top of a 300 metre high hill near the city. Due to its unique geographical location, the observatory took an active part in the world network of observatories, and Trépied and an assistant participated in the photographic mapping of the night sky, producing an unprecedented catalogue of stars.
He died on the evening of 10 June 1907, aged 62.
