Prof Vivien Schmidt Made Chevalier in the Legion of Honor

Professor Vivien Schmidt has been made a Chevalier in the Legion of Honor, one of the highest honors that France confers, and seldom awarded to non-French citizens.

A decoration ceremony will be held in the autumn at the French Consulate in Boston.

The Legion of Honor was created by Napoleon in 1802 to acknowledge services to France by people of exceptional merit.
