Americain En France

A French “reading and conversation book” for American soldiers prepared upon the entry of the United States into the First World War. This volume belonged to David S. Blondheim, at that time an associate professor of French and later a professor of Romance philology at Johns Hopkins University. Blondheim’s penciled notes suggest he might have used the book to prepare lessons for soldiers during his affiliation with the Army Educational Commission for American Soldiers Abroad from 1918-1919.
