Louis Pasteur's death occurred in 1895, near Paris due to a series of strokes that had started in 1868. He was buried in the Cathedral of Notre Dame, but his remains were reinterred in a crypt in the Institute Pasteur in Paris. In 1895, he won the Leeuwenhoek medal, microbiology's highest Dutch honor in Arts and Sciences. Both Institute Pasteur and University Louis Pasteur were named after him. He was made a Knight of the Legion of Honour in 1853, promoted to Commander in 1868, to Grand Officer in 1878 and made a Grand Croix of the Legion of Honor in 1881. In many places all over the world streets are named in his honor. In my personal opinion, Louis Pasteur is an inspiring individual. Even though he came from a poor family, he lived a life of success and honor. He discovered a solution for some of the most life threatening and dangerous diseases. I truly admire all of his efforts and hard work. I honestly have no objections when it comes to his research. His ambition and determination allowed him to stay focused and accomplish many goals.
