    • Occupation: Sculptor (Christopher Long). Captain in the Greek Army ("La Marquise de Fontenoy," Chicago Daily Tribune, 2 May 1914, p 6; Washington Post 2 May 1914).
    • "Victor de Lesseps [Michel Negroponte's stepfather] regarded her son by her first marriage as if he were his own offspring, and young Negroponte was treated by old Ferdinand de Lesseps as if he were one of his grandchildren.

      "When he grew up young Negroponte entered the Greek army, attained the rank of captain, and, being rich through his mother andher brothers, married some years ago Jeanne Hugo, the ex-wife of Leon Daudet and Jean Chareot.

      "The union proved a happy one. Capt. Negroponte recently died in Paris as the result of an operation for appendicitis.

      "As soon as the now grief stricken widow's period of mourning is over she will doubtless take to herself a fourth husband. Nobody dreams of Jeanne Hugo remaining single."

      --"La Marquise de Fontenoy," Chicago Daily Tribune, 2 May 1914, p 6; Washington Post 2 May 1914.
    • The article cited above names Michel's father as George, rather than Jacques (by Argenti).
    • Education: l'Ecole Saint-Cyr, Paris.
