Louis Adolphe Huguet-Latour died in Montreal, Canada, in May 1904, having been a member of this Society since 1861. He belonged to the family “De Vaslois de Valois Ville." His occupation was that of a Notary which in Canada is an important office. His interest in historical matters was shown in the publication of Annals of the conspicuous events in the History of Canada.
Some pamphlets from his pen with reference to the Catholic Church were published, and were so highly considered that the late Pope Pius X made him a Knight of the Holy Sepulchre. No extended notice of him has come to my attention.
8. U. James Henry Salisbury died at his summer home at Dobbs Ferry, N. Y., Aug 23, 1905.
He was born in Scott, Cortland Co., N. Y., Oct. 13, 1823; graduated at the Polytechnic Institute of Troy, N. Y., in 1846 and at the Albany Medical College in 1850. In addition to the degrees thus obtained he also received that of LL.D., from Union College and Amity College of Indiana. He became a member of many learned societies, including this Society, which he joined in 1862. Much of his work was in the line of microscopic investigation, the results of which were published in the transactions of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.
The germ theory received his early attention, his discoveries therein being also published. He practised as a specialist in the causes and treatment of chronic diseases in Cleveland Ohio and in N. Y. City. He was the author of numerous books and pamphlets, including about seventy-five monographs, many of which related to his therapeutical discoveries.
A good notice of him and his work may be found in the National Cyclopædia of American Biography, Vol. 8, 469.
