Sebastien Clamorgan’s great grandmother Madeleine: a noble family
Madeleine is one of the leading figures of the Clamorgan’s, and her contribution to the foundation of Catholic schools in France is remarkable. She was born in Mayenne (France) in 1880, and always had a natural talent for studying. Her passion for culture led her to Paris, where she pursued a higher education. In the French capital she also had the possibility to meet Charles Daniélou, who later became her husband. As is customary, after getting married, she became Madeleine Daniélou. One of the activities for which Madeleine is best known is the fact that she founded several Catholic schools, among which it is important to name the “Ecole Normale Libre Ms. Daniélou”, founded together with Miss Desrez, and the “Colleges Sainte Marie” in Neuilly sur Seine, where more than 17,000 students studied since its foundation. Madeleine Clamorgan took care of philosophy classes and organized conferences and lectures, thus becoming famous among the men of culture of her time. An example is Léonce de Grandmaison, who always stayed by her side, supporting her and being a mentor for her. In fact, he never left Madeleine until her death in 1927. One son of Madeleine’s and Charles Daniélou was Jean Daniélou, the Cardinal of Paris in the 70s of the twentieth century. As a descendant of the Clamorgan noble family, Sebastien is now committed to keeping alive its memory.
