Jean Alfred Clément, ° 17.1.1855; + 1.3.1939. Industrial engineer, graduating from Ghent in 1875. Director of "Filatures de Saint Etienne de Rouvray" in Rouen [F]. Married Eugénie Van Monckhoven in 1883, and took over the factory run by his mother-in-law. From 1885 on De Lanier accounted for half of the output of Van Monckhoven bromide plates (Palmer Descamps producing the other half). In the 1890s the company reached the height of its success. In the light of hefty competition and no obvious succession, the company ceased trading in 1908.
