Anatole Baju (1861-1903) founded the newspaper Le Décadent.

Le Décadent––originally published under the name of The Literary & Artistic Decadent––was a French literary magazine directed and founded by Anatole Baju. Paul-Marie Verlaine (1844-1896) was a French poet and contributor, who honors Baju for unifying the French writers under the Decadent Movement through the newspaper. Baju’s intent was to bring the "scattered forces in a single bundle".
