Pierre H. Boucheron

My grandfather Pierre H. Boucheron published magazine articles and left many unpublished manuscripts. I edited some of these as articles about him. “A Businessman Aloft” which he wrote in 1939 appears today in the online magazine Across the Margin. Tomorrow, the same magazine will publish “Greenland Assignment” from his book by that title. And the next day, they will run “The Captain,” which goes from 1943 to the end of his life. He was a captain in the United States Naval Reserve.
