Dinosaurs gathered in Paris
Wednesday 10 May 2023
De Gaulle, the Ayatollah Khomeini, the fall of Saigon, the Yom Kippur War, the Charlie Hebdo attack - former correspondents and editors of Reuters France swapped tales of their work in the Paris bureau and beyond over lunch in the shadow of Le Louvre today.
It was the latest in periodic gatherings of the "Paris Dinosaurs," a tradition nurtured by the late Bernard Edinger.

Any former Reuters journalist who worked at one time in France and who would like to be on the Paris Dinosaurs mailing list is encouraged to write to Nelson Graves at LNgraves@hotmail.com. ■
