Dognin lived at 11 Villa Molitor, Paris 16. He was a member of the Société entomologique de France.

Part of his collection was purchased by James John Joicey in 1921. The 82,000 other specimens (including 3,000 Dognin types and over 300 Thierry-Mieg types) were sold in 1926 to William Schaus, who then donated it to National Museum of Natural History in Washington, DC.
