The connections between L’Année philologique and Switzerland, and particularly the Canton of Vaud, have always been close, for two reasons. The first is that its founder Jules Marouzeau, taken prisoner of war by the Germans in 1915, had a period of hospitalization the following year at Bex, in the Chablais vaudois, where he remained until the end of the First World War, establishing life-long friendships. The second reason is that Juliette Ernst, who collaborated on the bibliography beginning in 1929 (before becoming Editor-in-Chief in 1931 and, eventually, Director), was Swiss and studied in Lausanne (as did Marianne Bammate-Duvoisin, who began to assist her most ably in 1957). The Swiss office of L’Année philologique was created in 1977 with the support of the Fonds suisse de la recherche scientifique. It did not become operational until 1978 with the arrival of Brigitte Coutaz-Lamy, who remains to this day. Administratively the Swiss office is affiliated with the universities of Lausanne and Geneva, represented by professors Danielle Van Mal-Maeder et Paul Schubert respectively. Its funding is provided jointly by the Association suisse pour l’étude de l’antiquité and the Académie suisse des sciences humaines et sociales.
