Yayasan Mahargijono Schützenberger Indonesia was established as dedication to memory the late Michel Mahargijono Schutzenberger who lost his life at tragic accident in March 29,1980 near Paris, at the age of 23.
He was the son of Marcel Paul Schützenberger, (A French Medical Doctor and mathematician) from his second married to Hariati Soerosoegondo who met in Indonesia in 1953. His father worked for the OMS and his mother managed a women association.
