IT is with profound regret that we have to announce the death of Prof. Emil C. Hansen, director of the Carlsberg Laboratory, Copenhagen, which occurred after a brief illness on August 27. Born in 1842, he attended in his youth the art school at Copenhagen, but subsequently, between 1871 and 1876, devoted himself to the study of science at Copenhagen University. He entered the Carlsberg Institute in 1877, where he commenced his memorable researches on microbiology.
