Louis Pasteur

Chemist, Inventor, Scientist (1822–1895)

Scientist Louis Pasteur came up with the food preparation process known as pasteurization where bacteria is destroyed by heating beverages and then allowing them to cool. He also developed the vaccine for rabies and anthrax.

Pasteur grew up in the town of Arbois, and his father, Jean-Joseph Pasteur, was a tanner and a sergeant major during the Napoleonic Wars. An average student, Pasteur was skilled at drawing and painting before pursuing the sciences. He earned his Bachelor of Arts degree in 1840 and a Bachelor of Science degree in 1842 at the Royal College of Besançon, and a Doctorate in 1847 from the École Normale in Paris.

In 1848, he became a professor of chemistry at the University of Strasbourg, where he met Marie Laurent, the daughter of the university’s rector. They married on May 29, 1849, and had five children, though only two survived to adulthood.
