Does the NL hold any biographical information on Adrien Sechehaye?


I am looking for biographical material on the life and works of a Swiss doctor by the name of Adrien Sechehaye (12.6.1874- 30.11.1961). He was a graduate of the University of Geneva


We have reviewed several research tools the NL holds or others accessible online:

- in the NLs' online catalogue Helveticat I have found the 7 titles listed in the attached pdf.

- NL's catalogues of periodical and newspaper articles: no entry for Adrien Sechehaye

- WBIS (World Biographical Information System online, a database for which the NL holds a licence): there is one article about the family Sechehaye of Geneva recorded, where Adrien is mentioned. This article is in:
"Historisch-biographisches Lexikon der Schweiz", Bd. 6, p. 319. A scan of the original publication the NL holds under the call number JA 949.4003 HLS is enclosed (pdf).
