Charles Vildrac (1882 - 1971)
Charles Vildrac, born as Charles Messager, was a French poet, playwright, and essayist whose idealistic commitment to humanitarianism characterized his artistic and personal life.
Vildrac, along with the writer Georges Duhamel (later his brother-in-law) and others, founded the Abbaye de Créteil, a community of young artists and writers who, from 1906 to 1907, lived together in the Paris suburb of Créteil. During World War II he was active in the French Resistance.
