  Albert Calmette (1863-1933)
Del círculo de Louis Pasteur y su Instituto, Albert Calmette destacó por aunar tres cualidades: ser buen investigador de laboratorio, un buen administrador y un gran estratega.
Calmette poseía una formación militar y hay que tener en cuenta la estrecha conexión que hubo entre el desarrollo de la salud pública colonial en Indochina y los intereses políticos y militares franceses.
Calmette tuvo que soportar acontecimientos trágicos a lo largo de su carrera (la guerra, el apresamiento de su mujer, el asesinato de su hermano…), pero el que le afectó de forma más dramática fue el asunto de Lubeck (1930-32).
