The Banquet

On 6 September 1965, 400 guests gathered in the gymnasium of La Barre school in Varennes to celebrate the 300th anniversary of Nicolas Choquet in America. The following photos were reproduced from those found in the Elisée Choquet Fund. The first consists of the table of honour. Unfortunately, no legend accompanied the photo. Recognize anyone?
