After having been trained at the Sorbonne, this pioneering geographer spent much of his career at the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil, where he researched the impact of pioneer settlements, the development of coffee production, and the growth of that city. Drawing on ideas from various social sciences, he explored linkages between coffee producers and the global commodity trade. After returning to France, he taught at several institutions of higher learning including the Sorbonne and a new institute for Latin American studies in Paris that he headed. His position in French geography was transitional between Vidalian orthodoxy and innovations inspired by social sciences in the second half of the twentieth century. His legacy is both to regional geography and to development studies. - (HC)
