Reference work entry


Aupetit was born in Sancerre (Cher). His two doctoral theses at the Faculté de Droit were respectively entitled Théorie générale de la monnaie (1901) and Les accidents du travail dans l’agriculture. Having twice failed the concours d’agrégation, the narrow gateway to a professorship at the Faculté de Droit, he entered the research department at the Banque de France, where he served as secretary-general from 1920 to 1926. He then entered private business. In 1936 he was elected a member of the Institut de France. His teaching was restricted to the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Etudes (1910–14) and to the Ecole des Sciences Politiques, from 1921 on.
