Baldus, born in Germany, changed his first name "Eduard" to "Édouard" after moving to Paris ca. 1838. Baldus became a naturalized French citizen in 1849. Based on M.R. Daniel's publication The Photographs of Édouard Baldus (1994), LCNAF indicates that, "although [Baldus] is frequently referred to in modern photographic literature as Édouard-Denis Baldus, no instance [was] found in which Baldus or others used this appellation during his lifetime."
