Comments: In the Nobel Peace Prize protocol the name Descamps-David was listed as David Descamps. It is highly likely that the nominee in question was Chevalier Eduard Descamps. Fried nominated a person called Chevalier Descamps-David, and it is highly probable that the secretary believed that David was the candidate's Christian name since Fried did not give a Christian name for the candidate. Fried assumed that the name Descamps was well-known. Louvain, the place of the candidates residence, was also the place where Eduard Descamps lived.
