PIERRE MASSON (1880 - 1959) was considered one of the leading histopathologists of his era. He was born in Dijon and studied medicine at the University of Paris and the Pasteur Institute. He was offered the chair of pathology at the University of Strasbourg. He is credited with first describing neurocrine secretion and his work led to the development of modern neuroendocrinology. He was also known for his research into brain tumours. Masson developed at three-stain protocol used in histology known as Masson's trichrome stain (2 folding color plates demonstrating Masson trichrome stain included in this monograph). In 1927, he left Strasbourg to become chair of the Pathology department at the Universite de Montreal. Masson reworked the pathology curriculum at the university and reorganized the pathology laboratories there, retiring in 1954.
