The Library’s Left Bank branch10 October 2017
Milton E. Lord, director of the Boston Public Library, is asked to take over the direction of the American Library, fearing Chambrun’s connection with the Vichy regime might imperil the Library. No charge is brought against Chambrun and her son, and she denies the allegations of being a collaborationist. She argues her case in her second memoir Shadows Lengthen, published in 1949.
