Victor Bérard (1920)

Victor Bérard (French: [beʁaʁ]; Morez, 10 August 1864 – Paris, 13 November 1931) was a French diplomat and politician.

Today, he is still renowned for his works about Hellenistic studies and geography of the Odyssey.[1] Bérard's "L'Angleterre et l'impérialisme" was translated into English and published in 1906 as "British imperialism and commercial supremacy" (Longmans, Green, London, New York).[2]
