Vaugeois150 years ago on April 25th 1864, Henri Vaugeois was born in L' Aigle ( Lower Normandy), a philosopher, journalist and a nationalist-monarchist activist; he came from a republican family (one of his ancestors – J.-F. Vaugeois was a Jacobin and a King slayer of the Convent , yet another, a royalist who fought in the Army of Conde) and himself in his youth (up until the time of the "Dreyfus Affair") was an extreme left-wing Republican, a member of a Union for moral Action, a Spinozist and a Kantian; on the 8th of April 1898 he founded (with Maurice Pujo) an anti-Dreyfusard French Action Committee (Comité d' Action française )- already a nationalist, but still a Republican; converted (him and his friends ) to monarchism by Charles Maurras around the year 1900; few years later Vaugeois also converted to Catholicism and began to fight the criticism of Kant (and the influence of German thought altogether); after the transformation (1905) of the AF Committee into French Action League was its first formal chairman, as well as remaining an editor (published until 1914) of the Revue d' Action Française monthly; after the outbreak of World War I he volunteered for the army; he died in 1916.
