AUGUSTE ARTHUR DE LA RIVE (1801-1873), Swiss physicist, was born at Geneva on the 9th of October 1801.
He was the son of Charles Gaspard de la Rive (1770-1834), who studied medicine at Edinburgh, and after practising for a few years in London, became professor of pharmaceutical chemistry at the academy of Geneva in 1802 and rector in 1823.
