Raoul Dautry. Manager of men (1920-1937)
[ Abstract ]
This paper characterises the French railways engineer Raoul Dautry as an organiser and as a social engineer, both of them roles that he mastered to stand out of his contemporaries. The attention is focused on three of his most remarkable achievements: The use of the Scientific Organisation of Work at the railways, the construction of the garden cities of the Nord company, and the layout of the apprentice school of the l’Etat company. Finally, his departure from the railways and his promotion as a technocratic figure, area in which he breaks new ground, will also be introduced.
