Sarton medal awarded to Serge Dauchy (Lille)
Georges Sarton (Harvard) was one of the founding fathers of the history of science. The University of Ghent, his alma mater, has therefore given his name to the medals it awards every year to scholars who have distinguished themselves in the study of the history of science. On Thursday, February 25th the 2009-2010 Sarton medal for legal history was awarded to professor Serge Dauchy, head of the Centre d'histoire Judiciaire (CNRS-Lille II).
The Sarton medal for legal history was awarded in previous years to P. Letto-Vanamo, F. Stevens, J. Weitzel, D. Tamm, A. Lefebvre-Teillard, A. Wijffels, J.-L. Thireau, Ph. Godding and R.C. Van Caenegem.
