About Us

Louis Bergeron



Born 1929 in Strasbourg and died in 2014 in Paris,, an alumnus of the Ecole normale supérieure, rue d’Ulm, “docteur d’Etat” in History (1974), I have been teaching the economic and social history of industrialisation in Western Europe from 1971 through 1997, then I retired.

I have been involved in researching, promoting or managing industrial heritage since 1978, when I was the vice-president founder of the CILAC (Comité d’Information et de Liaison pour l’Archéologie et la Conservation du patrimoine industriel – the French national association in that field). Then I became a member of TICCIH Board (The International Committee for the Conservation of the Industrial Heritage), then president (1990-2000) and now « honorary president for life » - I was the president of the Ecomusée de la Communauté Urbaine Le Creusot –Montceau les Mines (France, Saône-et-Loire) since 1996 to 2000.
