Paul Fallot Fund

The geologist Paul Fallot (1889-1960), held the posts of director of the Institute of Applied Geology of Nancy, and was professor of Mediterranean geology at the Collège de France from 1937.

He devoted his efforts to the study of the formation of the mountain ranges in the Mediterranean area, which led him to travel around these places, recording his observations in various documents. His legacy includes old projectable material, photographs, field notebooks, geological maps, scientific reports, manuscripts, and a large collection of positive stereoscopic glass plates, together with photographic negatives also on glass support, which show natural and even urban landscapes of the areas studied by the researcher at the beginning of the century, of great curiosity and interest.
