Paul Hymans

I was so busy on Friday in Rome that I didn't have the time to pay my tribute, on behalf of this blog, to the person from whom I borrowed its name.

Paul Hymans was born in March 23, 1865 in Ixelles (Brussels). Lawyer and university teacher, he was also a Liberal politician, member of several Belgian governments between 1918 and 1936 and representative of Belgium at the 1919-1920 peace conference which led to the signature of the Versailles' Treaty. Paul Hymans was also the first President of the League of Nations in 1920-1921.
