Marignac, Gabriel-Louis Galissard de (b. 1736)

Poet, military officer, and regent of the Collège de Genève.

Benjamin Franklin Bache’s schoolmaster in Geneva (1779-83). Since regents were poorly paid and frequently took in boarders, Bache began staying in the home of the Marignac family during the week (1780).

Born in Geneva. Married to Jeanne-Pernette Gaudy (died 1772); to Susanne Mallet- Genoud.
