The Tomb of Louis Pasteur

    Article metrics


    AN account of the impressive ceremony with which the remains of Pasteur were laid in their last resting-place at the Pasteur Institute was given in these columns on December 31, 1896. We are indebted to the Lancet of January 9 for the following full description of the tomb, and for the accompanying illustration, which is reproduced from a fine picture of the mausoleum of the great French investigator.
