Étienne Lamy.

Étienne Marie Victor Lamy (2 June 1845 – 9 January 1919)[1] was a French author, born in Cize, Jura. He was educated at the College Stanislas and became a doctor of law in 1870. From 1871 to 1881 he was a deputy from his native department, Jura, and his earlier writings were political and historical. In the House of Deputies he was a member of the Left, but he broke with his party and became a clerical reactionary, writing for the Gaulois and the Correspondant. In 1905 he became a member of the Académie française (seat #21), and in 1913 he succeeded Thureau-Dangin as its perpetual secretary. Among Lamy's works are:

  • Le tiers parti (1868)
  • L'Armée et la democratie (1889)
  • La France du Levant (1898)
  • Etudes sur le second empire (1895)
  • La femme de demain (1899)
  • an edition of the memoirs of Aimée de Coigny (1900)
  • Témoins de jours passés (1909, 1913)
  • Au service des idées et des lettres (1909)
  • Quelques œuvres et quelques œuvriers (1910, 1913)
