labors is compatible in medicine only to that of Virchow in his field and is
as great as that exerted in general biology by Darwin's researches. The story
of rapid sequence of Pasteur's brilliant discoveries in science, each of
crucial importance and establishing a new principle have, I believe, no
parallel in biology or, for that matter, any other science. But before
presenting Pasteur's labors it is necessary to outline the knowledge of
bacteria and the theories of fermentation, infection and allied processes
which were current at the beginning of his era..."
