L’Enfant and the Freemasons: H. Paul Caemmer’s The Life of Pierre Charles L’Enfant
April 30, 2013
Edited and Introduced by Guillermo De Los Reyes
The papers of Hans Paul Caemmerer (1922-1954) are deposited in the National Archives and include considerable correspondence concerning this book about Pierre Charles L’Enfant (1754–1825). It was Caemmerer who dispelled the belief that L’Enfant was an engineer, and found that he studied in the French Royal Academy of Painting and Sculpture under his own father, an accomplished oil painter. L’Enfant’s big opportunity was to fill a blank canvas, physically and ideologically, of what became the capital. L’Enfant and pace, Caemmerer’s life of him, have been much cited by those who have caught a fever in terms of Washington as being of occult design.
