Dr. Henri Contagne

Extract

The death of Dr. Contagne, the medico-legal expert and lecturer on forensic medicine at Lyons, should not be allowed to pass wholely unrecorded here, since he was always warmly interested in English medical science, and especially in all that concerned the treatment and study of criminals. He was Professor Lacassagne's chief co-worker in the great French medico-legal centre, and his name came prominently before the public at the time of President Carnot's assassination. He translated Taylor's monumental work, published various medico-legal studies of his own, and was one of the editors of the Archives d'Anthropologie Criminelle, He was a charming writer, and wrote several volumes on his travels and on music. He was also an accomplished musician and composer. Almost his last labour was the translation of Dr. Arthur Macdonald's Le Criminel-Type, lately noticed in the Journal. His courteous assistance and refined hospitality were always at the service of English visitors, and his death will sever a link between French and English science. He died last autumn at the age of 49.
