The scientific tourist #98 — Rue Cuvier

Georges Cuvier (1769 – 1832) founded vertebrate paleontology, and all he got for his troubles was this lousy street sign…

But at least it’s a street in Paris — that’s got to be worth something…

Better yet, Rue Cuvier borders the north side of the Jardin des Plantes (and most of the buildings of the National Museum of Natural History). I think he’d be happy.
