Administrative/Biographical history:

Honoré Aubanel was a distinguished alienist and writer on medical jurisprudence. He obtained his MD at Paris in 1839, and in 1843 was Chief Medical Officer to the St Lazare Hospital for the Insane at Marseilles. On the demolition of this ancient Asylum, Aubanel built a new Hôpital de St Pierre, to which he transferred the inmates of St Lazare, where they were housed and treated under the more humane systems of Pinel and Esquirol.
