Setting the record straight: the French pair did it
"we were taught he even Anglicized the pronunciation of his name" Very special argument ! Are you sure it's not the contrary ?

1974, Screens and the French team
In 1974 in Venice the French Team have only 4 players. It was a disaster, and this practice to play with only four players was very criticized at the time (cf. "Le Bridgeur", n°355, July 1974, p.18 ) In 1974 the french trials (for the national team) were played ...
