Correspondence with Louis Véron (1798-1867)

Scope and Content

Véron was a French doctor, entrepreneur, journalist, and politician. Despite his PhD in Medicine, Véron decided to be a journalist. In 1831, he directed the Opéra of Paris until 1835. He then bought Le Constitutionnel in 1844, which he sold in 1852 with a huge capital gain. As he supported Louis Napoléon Bonaparte during his presidency, he was logically elected deputy in 1852 and 1857, but sometimes opposed to his politics. He also published his long Memoirs (1854).
