Death of Edouard Naville
Historians of medicine will regret the death of Edouard Naville of Geneva, vice president of the International Red Cross. He was born in 1844. Mr. Naville has revealed much of the history and religion of ancient Egypt. After his early education in Geneva, Mr. Naville studied at King's College, London, of which he subsequently became a fellow. This was followed by residence at the universities of Paris, Berlin and Bonn. He became especially prominent by his work on the Egyptian "Book of the Dead" and the elucidation of funeral papyri. He was a profuse writer on biblical subjects. One of his latest and most erudite works is "La haute critique dans le Pentateuque." Just before the Great War he published a valuable work on Old Testament archeology. He performed excellent service in connection with the Red Cross.
