" Colonel Broye was an officer (1875-1877) during the tenure of Mac Mahon, president (1875-1879) of Military House of the Republic. There were only three other officers serving this president. In Pasteur's important study of fermentation, he discovered that contamination of beer was caused by microorganisms found in the air and not spontaneously generated as had been previously believed. He made possible the scientific processing of beer, wine, milk, and other perishable products. (Heirs, 1898) ( Garrison-Morton, 2485; Norman, 1658; Osler 1550). Bookseller Inventory # 0000453
