The Key to Scientific Names
Lt.-Col. Victor-Paul Courtot (fl. 1925) French Army, explorer in the Sahara, leader of the Mission Tunis-Tchad (syn. Galerida cristata alexanderi).

He seems to be co author of Du golfe des Syrtes au golfe du Bénin par le lac Tchad. Journal de marche de la mission Tunis-Tchad dirigée par le lt-col. Courtot. Maybe born 11/02/1869 in Paris and died 17/11/1959 in Montauban?
