Jeanne Calment was the oldest validated person ever! She reached the amazing age of 122 years and 164 days. She was also WOP for more than 9 years. The longest WOP reign ever.

coincidentally, Lucile Randon's twin sister, Lydie Randon was passed away on 4 August 1905, which the same date as Calment passed away (but 92 years apart).

Inserm have released many audio interviews with Jeanne Calment, conducted between 1992 and 1995, when Jeanne would have been between 117 and 120. These interviews were primarily undertaken by her validator Jean-Marie Robine and her medical doctor Victor Lebre. In total, they consist of around 15 hours of audio interviews, surely the most extensive series of recorded interviews ever undertaken with any world's oldest person.

Here is an English translation of the blurb on the Inserm website:

This collection presents the recordings of digitized audio cassettes of interviews between Jeanne Calment and Victor Lèbre, her attending physician. These regular interviews took place between 1992 and 1995, in the retirement home where Jeanne Calment lived, in Arles, at the end of her life. The cassettes were collected by Michel Allard and Jean-Marie Robine, research director at Inserm and the Ecole Pratique des Hautes Études, both specialists in human longevity. At the end of the collection, they published a work "The 120 years of Jeanne Calment, doyenne of humanity". This research made it possible to validate the longevity record of Jeanne Calment, before her death in 1997 at the age 122.

The collection was entrusted for digitization and made available to the Inserm/DISC Archives service. Private and/or medical information is not disseminated. This audio collection complements the fund on the centenary survey paid by Jean-Marie Robine to the Inserm Archives in 2019. This survey carried out by Inserm and the IPSEN foundation in 1990 is the first survey of this type at the European level. In particular, it made it possible to discover the existence of Jeanne Calment as the dean of humanity. The interviews presented on iPubli arise directly from this century-old investigation, the memories of life in Arles, as described by Jeanne Calment, clearly showing an entire life spanning almost three centuries, (February 21, 1875-August 4, 1997) .

@chris thanks you for those great videos!

RIP Jeanne Calment, who was born 149 years ago today. So many longevity feat, she is simply the legend of the legends!.

Her 111th birthday was the day Shigechiyo Izumi died. Izumi's record is now widely recognized as debunked, but the Japanese men still had other big connection to Ms. Calment: Jiroemon Kimura, is the last person in the world to be over 100 years old when Calment's death.

I don't think most people have thought about it, but the last person who was already supercentenarian when Jeanne Calment died is Maud Farris-Luse (21 January 1887 – 18 March 2002) who died less than 5 years after Calment's death.
