Anthelme Richerand, baron, a French physiologist, born in Belley, Feb. 4, 1779, died in Paris, Jan. 25, 1840. He graduated at the Paris school of medicine in 1799, and at first devoted himself to the study of physiology. He was appointed surgeon to the hospital St. Louis, and in 1807 professor of surgical pathology in the faculty of medicine. When the allied troops occupied Paris on the fall of Napoleon, Richerand was distinguished by the vigor and devotion with which he cared for the sick and wounded of all nationalities, for which he received many honors from foreign governments, and the French government made him a baron and surgeon-in-chief to the three first legions of the national guard of Paris. His principal works are: Nouveaux éléments de physiologie (Paris, 1801), which passed through ten editions and was translated into many languages; Leçons sur les maladies des os (1805); Nosographie et thérapeutique chirurgicales (1805); De l'enseignement actuel de la méde-cine et de la chirurgie (1816); Des officiers de santé et des jurys médicaux (1834); and De la population dans ses rapports avec la nature des gouvernements (1837).
