Louis Andr Gaspard Michaud (Sornac, 7 December 1795 - Lyons, 4 April 1880) was a French malacologist. He is also known as Gaspard Michaud or as Andr Louis Gaspard Michaud. Michaud was the son of a teacher who stimulated his son's passion for natural sciences. He signed up for the infantry in 1813. He was injured twice during the siege of Metz (1814-1815). After his recovery in 1815 he became fully interested in natural sciences and began a conchological collection. When his father died in 1817, he decided to stay in the army to support his family. His career went well and he became an officer in 1823.show more
