Death of Auguste Swaen
The death of M. Auguste Swaen, emeritus professor and former rector of the University of Liége, and a member of the Royal Academy of Medicine of Belgium, is announced. For half a century he gave instruction in anatomy and histology at the Faculté de médecine de Liége, which he elucidated in the same manner as Van Beneden, Spring, Frédéricq and Masius. He became, in turn, the teacher of such men as Brachet, Duesberg and H. De Winiwarteret, who will recall, with feelings of emotion, the many fruitful hours of labor spent at his institute. The remarkable collections brought together as the result of his initiative and in accordance with his directions furnish tangible evidence of his activity. The University of Liége will long preserve the memory of this great scientist and teacher. In his honor, the institute of anatomy has been rechristened the Auguste Swaen Institute.
