Written very near the end of his life on his Académie Française calling card. (Aron died the night before he was to give his acceptance speech for the Academy.)
Autograph Note on Calling Card signed: "Robert", 1 page, 5x3¼ Printed text: "Robert Aron/of the French Academy". No place, no date, but circa 1975. To "My dear Paul". In French, loosely translated: "Do you want to receive Mr. Chenevere? He asks me for advice that I'm not competent to give him. Very affectionately" French writer Robert Aron (1898-1975), wounded in combat near the end of World War I, spent the 1920s as a theater and literary critic, especially interested in avant-garde works. In the 1930s, he turned his attention to politics, authoring several books including Decadence of the French Nation and The American Cancer. He was part of a movement of French intellectuals variously styled the New Order and the Non-Conformist Movement, which rejected all the prevailing "isms" (communism, fascism and democratic capitalism) in favor of a new spirit of community. After the fall of France in 1940, Aron, who was Jewish, was imprisoned by the Nazis, escaped, and joined the Free French forces. His postwar writings were mostly histories. He advocated European federalism and Judeo-Christian reconciliation. He was elected to the prestigious Académie Française, but died the night before he was to have given his acceptance speech. Fine condition.
