|Tokens,| |Medals| |&| |Exonumia|, |France,| |Francois-Vincent| |Raspail,| |Bronze| |Medal,| |After| |1848||medal|
Franois-Vincent Raspail, L.L.D., M.D. (25 Jan 1794 7 Jan 1878) was a French chemist, naturalist, physician, physiologist, attorney, and socialist politician. Raspail was one of the founders of the cell theory in biology. After the revolution of 1830, he became involved in politics. He was President of the Human Rights Society, and was imprisoned for that role. While in prison, he tended sick inmates and studied their diseases. In 1848, he founded a newspaper "L'ami du Peuple" and ran for President of the Second Republic, losing to Louis-Napolon Bonaparte (later Napoleon III). He was imprisoned again after participating in attempted revolts in May 1848 and March 1849. In 1853, Napoleon III commuted his sentence of imprisonment to exile. He returned to France from exile in 1862. In 1869 he was elected deputy from Lyon and in 1875 from Marseille. He remained popular and respected during the French Third Republic. The longest boulevard in Paris was named Boulevard Raspail in his honor, after which the Raspail Mtro station takes its name.
