Dr. Masseboeuf was the Departmental Director of Health when I was a departmental epidemiologist in Constantine (1964-66).
A remarkable biography (Jean Sadek Masseboeuf: itinéraire d’un médecin algérien : La Rochelle 1908-Constantine 1985, Volume 1, 1908-1962) was published under the signature of his nephew, Jean-Louis Masseboeuf, published by Bouchène.
I was a student and then a collaborator of Pr Chaulet, head of the department of pneumology, when I worked at the Dispensaire antituberrculeux d’El Harrach, 1966-72).
