Gide, Charles (1847–1932)
Gide was born at Uzés (Gard) and died in Paris. A strong Huguenot family tradition marked his austere and moralizing personality. His doctoral thesis was on Le droit d’association en matiére religieuse. He was a founder of the Revue d’Economie Politique (1887). He taught at the Faculty of Law in Bordeaux (1874), in Montepellier (1880), in Paris (1898) and at the Collége de France (1919).
