Survey at the Archives de l'Université de Genève

On February 25 and 26, 2014, the Archives of the University of Geneva, Switzerland, were surveyed. We looked for documents related to Jacques Huber among the papers of Robert Chodat (1865-1934), former Professor and Director of the Institute of Botany. Chodat was the Head of the Laboratory of Systematic Botany at the University, where Huber worked as Assistant from 1893 to 1895.

We found out that Huber was also Privat-Docent at the Faculty of Sciences from 1894 to 1895, where he taught two courses: "Parasitisme et symbiose dans le régne vegetal" and "Cytologie végétale".

We thank to Mrs. Dominique Torrione-Vouilloz, Mrs. Maria Zamora, and Mr. Kieran Pavel for their kind reception and support during the survey.

We also thank to the Conservatoire et Jardin Botaniques de la Ville de Genève (CJB) for the logistical support, especially to Dr. Fred Stauffer.
