A little history…

The room ‘La Chambre de l’Ecrivain’ is in memory of Raymond ESCHOLIER, who was a journalist, a novelist and an art critic. Having had family in the Ariege and in the Aude he spent his childhood holidays in Mirepoix and Chalabre. He married Marie-Loiuse Pons-Tande, originally from Mirepoix and the granddaughter of the first Mayor of Mirepoix and it was with his wife that he wrote his novels. He was a member of the Petit Palais and then later became the secretary of the management at the Beaux-Arts. He also published a collection of poems Vers l’Autre Rive.
In 1913 he was a member of the Conservation du Musee Victor Hugo. After having taken part in the First World War, he acquired a reputation as a novelist thanks to his works which were very moving and affectionate but full of irony. Some of his books were written about the life in Mirepoix in the 19thcentury. He was also a literary critic at the Petit Journal as well as the head of the office of President du Conseil(the Prime Minister) Aristide Briand. It was in 1931 that the French Academy awarded him with the Grand Prix de la Litterature for all his works.
