Captain Marcel Edouard de Jarny, the sixth of the French officers, who arrived in this country about one week later than the other officers detailed to help train the R. O. T. C., has had a career as remarkable as those of his colleagues. He was born in 1883, and is a graduate of the Ecole Centrale des Arts et Manufactures, of Paris, the highest technical school in France. In 1906 he was commissioned a second lieutenant in the artillery. Leaving the army, he visited the United States on business from 1908 to 1910.
He mobilized, August 3, 1914, as adjutant to the colonel commanding the 20th Regiment of Field Artillery. He took part in the early fighting in Belgium, the retreat, the battles of the Marne and Aisne, and the first and second battles of Champagne. Before coming to Harvard he was detailed to the British Ministry of Munitions in the department of Ordnance Research. He has been awarded the Croix de Guerre.
