About Étienne Joseph Louis Garnier-Pagès

  • Étienne Joseph Louis Garnier-Pagès (December 27, 1801 – June 23, 1841) was a French politician, born at Marseille. Soon after his birth his father Jean Francois Garnier, a naval surgeon, died, and his mother married Simon Pagès, a college professor, by whom she had a son.
  • The boys were brought up together, and took the double name Garnier-Pagès. Étienne found employment first in a commercial house in Marseille, and then in an insurance office in Paris.
  • In 1825 he began to study law, and made some mark as an advocate.
  • A keen opponent of the Restoration, he joined various democratic societies, notably the Aide-toi, le ciel t'aidera, an organization for purifying the elections. He took part in the revolution of July 1830; became secretary of the Aide-toi, le ciel t'aidera, whose propaganda he brought into line with his anti-monarchical ideas; and in 1831 was sent from Isère to the chamber of deputies.
  • He was concerned in the preparation of the Compte rendu of 1832, and advocated universal suffrage.
  • He was an eloquent speaker, and his sound knowledge of business and finance gave him a marked influence among all parties in the chamber. His half-brother, Louis-Antoine Garnier-Pagès (1803 – October 31, 1878), fought on the barricades during the revolution of July.
