Pouvoir économique et influence politique : Frédéric Bohn (1852-1923)

Abstract : Although he was a key element of the economic presence of Marseille and France in West Africa at the turn of the nineteenth century, Frédéric Bohn, founder of the Compagnie française d’Afrique occidentale (CFAO), is still little known. He did not find his place among other "colonials" from Marseille such as Victor Régis, Alfred Rabaud, Cyprien Fabre or Jules Charles-Roux. This article sheds light on the foundations of the economic success of this forgotten trader and identifies the men, networks and organisations that supported his numerous political initiatives while attempting to measure the impact and limits of his influence.
