In addition to being a worldwide known mycologist, Sabouraud was a talented painter and sculptor. Short biography and bibliography of Sabouraud

The outstanding names in the history of any branch of science are not always those of the men who made the primary observation. The prevailing climate of opinion and the available techniques greatly affect the contemporary significance attributed to any novel discovery and the historical land marks are frequently the reputations of subsequent workers who were men of their time, who showed singleness of purpose and who crystallise ideas which were nearing supersaturation. Raimond Sabauroud the French Dermatologist, was such a man. In the early 1890's by remaking observations which had been on record for fifty years but not universally accepted, he was able to silence finally the view that the association of fungi with ringworm was incidental.
Using the recently developed pure culture techniques he was able to establish convincingly the plurality of the ringworm fungi, and his medical training enabled him to integrate the mycological and clinical aspects of ringworm. He was stimulated by the advances made by able contemporaries in both medicine and veterinary science and finally in 1910 he codified both his own and their results in the monumental Les Teignes, one of the most comprehensive treatments ever given to a group of pathogenic fungi and a monograph to which students of the dermataophytes must still refer.
The dermatomycoses have always been a basic theme of medical and veterinary mycology and at the turn of the century they overshadowed the systemic mycoses by which the dermatomycoses are overshadowed today. They served to focus attention on fungi as pathogens of man and higher animals and provided a seed from which an interesting branch of medicine and vet science has emerged.

Bennett's portrait at the Royal College of Physicians of Edinburgh

In his 1842 paper Bennett gave the earliest description of pulmonary aspergillosis. Bennett was one of the first to recognise the importance of the microscope in the clinical investigation of disease and his use of the instrument was central to identifying the presence of a fungus in the sputum and, post mortem, lungs of the patient with aspergillosis.
