Mounting the stand, Pichon took his place to the left of the coffin. The accompanying senators ranged themselves around the minister. Some two weeks earlier, on April 2, a dockside ceremony had taken place in Tangier as Mauchamp’s coffin was being loaded on a ship for the voyage home. ”5 Now in Chalon, the eulogies resumed in a similar vein. The crowd stirred as Pichon pinned the cross of the Legion of Honor on a pillow set at the head of the coffin. Before his death legislators from Saône-et-Loire had lobbied unsuccessfully on Mauchamp’s behalf for the decoration; the irony of the posthumous award as a chevalier or knight was not lost on anyone.
The narrative’s appeal is obvious. At its root is the dismal irony of a young humanitarian doctor torn to shreds by the very people he intended to aid. 26 Curiously, the broad outline of Mauchamp’s life and death was already familiar to French readers long before it ever appeared on the front pages of the Parisian press. In 1896 H. G. Wells offered the public a brilliant fable of colonialism bearing the title The Island of Doctor Moreau. By the time of Mauchamp’s death, the popular novel had already gone through five editions in France.
These efforts quickly paid off. Most French leaders disagreed only as to how France should acquire control of Morocco, not whether it should. ” Initially, following the lead of Théophile Delcassé, the minister of foreign affairs, French diplomats opted for a gradual approach of peaceful penetration that called for extending French economic and cultural influence. Sending doctors such as Mauchamp to open clinics in Morocco’s cities was a notable example. On the other hand, weaning the sultan and his court away from their longstanding reliance on British advisers and inaugurating a reform program of French inspiration was another key aim.
