Sebastien Clamorgan: Madeleine Clamorgan's schools

As a successful entrepreneur, Sebastien Clamorgan founded Venia Internation in the early 1990s, a global firm that now has become a top player in the industry. Clamorgan's family has noble origins: one of the most relevant figures that made the history of this family is Madeleine Daniélou, Sebastien's great grandmother. She was an incredibly good student, a writer, a literate, a philosopher and the founder of many Catholic schools. She was also a good wife and the mother of six children. One of them was Jean Daniélou, who became Cardinal of Paris in the 1970s. Madeleine Clamorgan was born in Mayenne, France, in 1880. As soon as she began to study literature and philosophy, her teachers were astonished by her talent. Madeleine completed her education in 1897 and managed to go to Paris to pursue a higher education. There, she also met her future husband, Charles Daniélou. After their marriage, she became Mrs. Daniélou. With Miss Desrez, Madeleine founded the "Ecole Normale Libre Ms. Daniélou", which was a great success. She personally took care of the Philosophy class and organized many conferences and lectures. Thanks to her writings, she became famous among the important men of that age. Léonce de Grandmaison was her mentor and her spiritual guide: he stayed by her side, supporting her, until her death in 1927. Sebastien Clamorgan's great grandmother is also to remember for the foundation of the "Colleges Sainte Marie" in Neuilly sur Seine. The first one opened in 1913. Sebastien is now the representative of his noble family and is committed to keeping alive Madeleine's legacy and work.
