Under the direction of Jean Petitjean the 1957 World University Games were organised by the Paris University Club in Paris at their Stadium Charlety. He engaged an American student athlete at the Paris University Club, Martin Feinberg as his assistant. Mr. Petitjean met with and encouraged both eastern and western block Student Sports Federations to participate together; which they did for the first time since the end of World War II. At the same time Mr. Feinberg obtained participation by American student athletes.
