  • From: Le Docteur Roux, Mon Oncle by Mary Cressac - Page 240
Emile Roux rested first in the crypt of the Rue Du tot, close to Monsieur and Madame Pasteur as he had to appoint his former Master and the wife of this one. A few months later he was buried in a cavern under the chestnut trees in the shadow of which he had walked so often in the company of his acquaintances and his scientific visitors. A very simple slab, of light marble, placed flat on the ground carries the name of Emile Roux and two dates that of his birth and that of his death

I. Original Works. Roux wrote very little. His memoirs written with Pasteur before 1890 were published in the Comptes rendus hebdomadaires des séances de l’Académie des Sciences et de l’Academie de médecine. Several later papers (1904–1933) can also be found there. His most important investigations were presented in the Annales and the Bulletin de l’Institut Pasteur (until 1903). The most important are “Contribution à 1’étude de la diphtérie,” in Annales de l’Institut Pasteur, and “Trois cent cas de diphtérie traités par le serum antidiphtérique,” ibid.

II. Secondary Literature. Numerous studies have been devoted to Roux. A list of these is given in A. Delaunay, L’Institut Pasteur, des origines à aujourd’hui (Paris, 1962). Two biographies should also be mentioned: M. Cressac, Le docteur Roux, mon oncle (Paris, 1950); and E. Lagrange, Monsieur Roux (Brussels, 1954).
