Dans l'ombre de ses maîtres : Alexandre-Eugène Béguyer de Chancourtois (1820-1886)

Abstract : Graduated at the École polytechnique in 1838, Alexandre-Eugène Béguyer de Chancourtois went then to the École des mines, where he spent the rest of his life. In the shadow of his two great mentors, Léonce Élie de Beaumont and Frédéric Le Play, he was an efficient assistant, involved notably in the illustration of the " réseau pentagonal " and in the organization of the first " Expositions universelles " in Paris. His many attempts to acquire an independent scientific stature met with little success, even if he was often on paths which led others to international fame.
