1732, Jan 151817, Jul 20
a French journalist, translator and man of letters during the Age of Enlightenment. He was born in Besançon and died in Paris. He was the editor of the Journal étranger in the years 1760–1762 and of the Gazette littéraire d'Europe in the years 1764–1766. Suard was on intimate terms with the philosophes and regularly attended the salon of Baron d'Holbach, although he seems to have eschewed their more radical ideas. In 1774 he was made a member of the Académie française, and later a state censor. For all his caution, Suard would later be harassed by both the Revolutionary and the Napoleonic regimes. His Mélanges de littérature were published in 1803–1805.
