Marcel Lamare is also well known for his big collection of Studies.

On ChesscomposerBlogspot we can read:

Marcel Lamare was also known as “Amateur de l'Ex-U.A.A.A.R.”.

His obituary can be found in “La Stratégie” décembre 1937, for which he was a regular contributor.
Alain Pallier wrote an article about Marcel Lamare’s remarkable collection of 12,000 endgame studies in EG 121 pg 870-871.
In this article he estimated: “Taking into account the identified lacunae,
it may not be over-optimistic to conjecture that Lamare's 12,000 form 80% of the cumulative world production of studies by the year 1937.”

On the French website Heritage des Echecs Francais you may find more about him.
