From Diaries by Lady D'Abernon

November 20th, 1918.
    To-day I had luncheon with little Daisy de Broglie, meeting Diana Capel,1 my old friend Princess Winnie de Polignac, the Academician Prince De Broglie and Count Isvolsky.2     (Etc.)

    1 Now Countess of Westmorland.
    2 Count Isvolsky had been Russian Ambassador in Paris until the collapse of the Imperial régime in 1917.

From Science and Sanity, 1933 by Alfred Korzybski

The new wave mechanics originated in 1924 in Paris, with the thesis of Louis de Broglie, published in 1925, and republished in a book form in 1926.

From Preface (1957) by Louis de Broglie

...      A long time ago in an article in the Journal de Physique of May 1927 I put forward a causal interpretation of wave mechanics which I called the "theory of double solutions" but I abandoned it, discouraged by criticisms which this attempt roused. In his 1952 paper Professor Bohm has taken up certain ideas from this article and commenting and enlarging on them in a most interesting way he has successfully developed important arguments in favour of a causal reinterpretation of quantum physics. Professor Bohm's paper has led me to take my old concepts up again, and with my young colleagues at the Institute, . . . we have been able to obtain certain encouraging results.   (..)   One can, it seems to me, hope that these efforts will be fruitful and will help to rescue quantum physics from the cul-de-sac where it is at the moment.
