René Caudron

From Inventing aviation
Jump to navigation Jump to search

René Caudron was an aero inventor, whom, along with Gaston Caudron, we have as having founded the firm we have simply as “Caudron”.[1] We have him as located within département Seine, France.[2] The “R. Caudron” of Patent BE-1916-275898 is almost definitely this René Caudron, in which case we have him more precisely located at rue Jean-Jaques Rousseau, 52-70, Issy-les-Moulineaux, France.[3]

We have him as located, early on, in the commune of Rue, département Somme, France, along with Gaston, and both men being described as Manufacturers.[4]

He was an Engineer, sometimes located at 56, Boulevard du Point du Jour, à Issy-les-Moulineaux, département Seine, France.[5] He was indeed later located at rue Jean-Jaques Rousseau, 52-70, Issy-les-Moulineaux, département Seine, France.[6]

Not all of his patent, though more than half, were filed in collaboration with Gaston Caudron. We are looking into the nature of this differential, which exists as pertaining to aero. René also seems to have a greater amount of non-aeronautical filing. Patent filing by René Coudron, of all varieties, seems to have continued well into the years during which “Caudron” existed as a firm.
