Two questions about Georges Canguilhem – both answered in the negative

Earlier this week I posted two questions about Georges Canguilhem – biography and archives

Two questions about Georges Canguilhem – does a biography exist in English or French? And are all his papers archived at CAPHÉS at the ENS? That looks quite extensive, but what I am looking for isn’t listed, so I wondered if there might, possibly, be another source?

Many thanks for the various answers I’ve received. The consensus seems to be that there is no full biography, though there are biographical elements in some of the books about him. There is a Centre Georges Canguilhem at Paris-VII, but this has no archives. I’ve been told that if it isn’t at CAPHÉS it was likely destroyed.
