Edouard Pape (* 18.4.1870 in Paris, † 6.3.1949 in Neuilly-sur-Seine) French composer, see wikipedia fr. “Edouard Pape composed more than 2000 problems, most of them twomovers in the "Good Companions" style - he was vice-president of the Good Companions. He wrote a chess-themed novel "La variante F.VIII du Gambit Camulogène". The Pape theme requests the double en-passant capture of the same white pawn."
