Emile Fradin.

As the early readers of The Elf of Luxembourg already know, the story begins with the discovery of the objects known today as Glozel Stones by Emile Fradin, in March of 1924.

So it is with immense sadness that we learned today of the passing of Emile, on February 10th, at the age of 103 – (Daily Telegraph).

Regardless of where you stand on the Glozel Stones controversy, it is safe to say that without Emile Fradin, the Elf would have been an entirely different book.

Our thoughts and regards go out to the Fradin Family.
