Correspondence of Jules Lechevalier

Administrative / Biographical History

Jules Lechevalier (1806-1862) was a socialist who was active in the co-operative and trade union movements, both in France and Britain. He founded a number of socialist journals in France, including Le Phalanstère and La Revue du Progrès Social, and contributed articles to several other publications. He supported the July Revolution in 1830 and later on the creation of the Second Republic in 1848, though his opposition to the election of Louis Bonaparte eventually led to his exile and relocation to Britain, where he became involved with the British co-operative movement.
