MAURICE DAUMAS (1910 - 1984) – The French Trailblazer
The history of technology would never have become a prominent field of historical research without energetic pathbreakers. Maurice Daumas was one of them. One of his better known early works is: Les instruments scientifiques aux XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles, which was also published in English. Between 1962 and 1978, he edited a highly acclaimed history of technology, Histoire générale des techniques, in five volumes, which has been translated into English and Spanish, and used as a textbook in various countries. In France, Daumas was also the pioneer of industrial archaeology. Daumas was the first secretary general of ICOHTEC and the host of its symposium at Pont- à-Mousson in 1970.
