|Contribution||Advocated seclusion of lepers, in Norway.|
|Notes||An Act of that year required isolation of lepers in homes or hospitals, with police enforcement. This was only one of a series of measures reflecting acceptance of the microbial causation of leprosy. It became a model for other countries. (Source is unpublished essay by P. F. Mange).|
