Heads of The President's Military Household (1879-1940)

The President's 'military household' (maison militaire) was formed by president Mac-Mahon but not insititutionalised until 1880. This group of officers advised the president on army matters, especially (under the French Third Republic) matters of ceremony. Such an allocation was useful since it allowed its officers to nourish political contacts in Paris who could aid their army careers.

Famous quotes containing the words household, heads, president and/or military:

    Unaware of the absurdity of it, we introduce our own petty household rules into the economy of the universe for which the life of generations, peoples, of entire planets, has no importance in relation to the general development.
    Alexander Herzen (1812–1870)

    You don’t know what you might be if you would look beyond the ball, the opera, the fashion-plate—and right over the heads of the perfumed, mustached bipeds who call themselves men and worship at your feet.
    Mattie Chappelle, U.S. women’s magazine contributor. The Revolution (April 28, 1870)

    Senator Albert B. Fall: “We have been praying for you, Sir.” President Wilson: “Which way, Senator?”
    Woodrow Wilson (1856–1924)

    Nothing changes my twenty-six years in the military. I continue to love it and everything it stands for and everything I was able to accomplish in it. To put up a wall against the military because of one regulation would be doing the same thing that the regulation does in terms of negating people.
    Margarethe Cammermeyer (b. 1942)
