Reaumur, temperature

René Antoine Ferchault de Réaumur (February 28, 1683 - October 17, 1757) was a French scientist of wide-ranging interests who made contributions in many fields, especially entomology. Réaumur was born and educated at La Rochelle. He was taught philosophy in the Jesuits' college at Poitiers, and in 1699 went to Bourges to study civil law and mathematics under the charge of an uncle, canon of La Sainte-Chapelle. In 1703 he came to Paris, where he continued the study of mathematics and physics, and in 1708, aged only twenty-four, was elected a member of the Académie des Sciences.
