In the beginning of the Nineteenth Century the "Pavillon Bellevue" was owned by the "Compagnie des grands hotels" . In 1907 they sold the "Pavillon" to Louis Auguste Paillard, a well known owner of several restaurants in Paris. He greatly improved the quality of the hotel, which became known as the "Paillard-Bellevue-Palace.
We will have our meeting in the "Pompadour Dining Room" of the former Palace, which had an impressive view of the Seine, the Eiffel Tower and the Mount Valerien.
The Palace was never profitable, and in 1913 Paillard sold it to a rich American English industrialist called Eugene Paris Singer. He was the lover of an American dancer, the Californian born Isadora Duncan. She had a very modern view of the art of dance, and enjoyed improvisation, and developing her own ideas. She thought that her mission on Earth was the creation of beauty, and the education of the young.
She opened a school in Bellevue to teach young women the art of dance, and used the large dining room as a dance hall. Unfortunately, the school was soon closed due to the outbreak of World War I in 1914... During the war the "Pavillon de Bellevue" became a hospital for war casualties, particularly for American troops.
After the war, in 1919, the "Direction Nationale des Recherches Scientifiques" was created, and the "Pavillon Bellevue" became a research centre. It has been completely renovated last year.
