NY Times Marriage Announcement:


Sister of New York Banker Marries Noted French Writer and Lecturer in Paris

MET FIRST IN NEW YORK Sorbonne Professor and His Bride Are Expected to Visit Here This Fall — PARIS, Sept.3,—Miss Mabel [sic] Davison, only sister of Henry P. Davison, the New York banker, and Anatole Le Braz, the French writer and lecturer, were married this morning in the office of the Mayor of the Seventh Arrondissement of Paris. Miss T. de R. Hawley and Dr. Charles Le Braz were the witnesses. The religious ceremony was performed this evening at the home of Dr. Douzelot [sic should be Donzelot], a stepson of the bridegroom, the Rev. Dr. Paul van Dyke, head of the American University Union of Paris, officiating. ————— Miss Davison has played a prominent part in the development of the Cosmopolitan Club. During the war she superintended the knitting by members of the club and was associated with the New York Chapter of the Red Cross. Her Summer home is at Gloucester, Mass., and she is a member of the North Shore Garden Club. It was during a prolonged visit in Europe that she became engaged to Professor Le Braz, whom she had met in New York two years previously while he was on a mission for the French Government. Professor Le Braz is a distinguished figure in the literary world of France and is an authority on Celtic lore and literature. He was born in old Celtic Brittany and his first professorship was at the University of Rennes. He has published twenty volumes and most of his books have been crowned by the French Academy. In recognition of his ability, he was selected by the French Government for more than twenty foreign missions. These included a course of lectures at Harvard in 1906 and at Columbia during the war. He is now a professor at the Sorbonne and is an officer of the Legion of Honor. Professor and Mme. Le Braz will reside in Paris during the Winter months and at Cotes-du-Nord, Brittany, during the Summer. They expect to make a visit to the United States this Fall."
