Janetta Warre was born January 26, 1922 in London. She grew up in Leicester and Scotland, as well as living in India from 1946 to 1950, and after returning to England married Colonel Anthony Warre in 1955. Together they had one daughter. Her interest in Teilhard de Chardin's work began after the English translations were published in the mid 1960's. In the 1970's Mrs. Warre met Pierre Leroy, S.J.. He later provided assistance in bringing the Teilhard de Chardin Centenary Exhibit from Paris and Brussels to London and Edinburgh in 1983. With Mrs. Warre's planning, Pierre Leroy later lectured at Oxford University and Georgetown University (1987) on Teilhard de Chardin's philosophy.
