This fonds contains material from Edmond Baudoin, who illustrated a book which included Leó Szilárd as a protagonist. Szilárd, after whom the EMBL Szilárd Library is named, was involved in the early development of EMBO, the European Molecular Biology Organization, which went on to found EMBL.
This item is a drawing from the French comic book "Les Rêveurs lunaires" by Edmond Baudoin and Cédric Villani. The book is about Werner Heisenberg, Alan Turing, Leó Szilárd and Hugh Dowding. The drawing was sent in a protective paper sleeve on which Edmond Baudoin wrote a note in French, addressed to Anne-Flore Laloë (the EMBL Archivist at the time), about the donation.
