From the beginning the interests of the Institute were far wider than the prevention of rabies. It immediately became the premier microbiological institute in the world for teaching and research and, despite many other foundations since, probably remains so. Pasteur himself lived on until 1895, his l a s t Y e a r dogged with much ill-health. But in tracing the history of his unsurpassed contributions to medical microbiology we do not need to look further than 14 July 1885, the day Joseph Meister survived an inoculation of fully virulent rabies virus.
Certainly it would be a mistake to regard Koch as poor and he seems to have equipped himself with a very good little laboratory. It was during his eight years at Wollstein, in his leisure moments, that Koch laid the foundations of his reputation as a bacteriologist and, indeed, had he never done anything else but his work at Wollstein he would still be regarded as one of the greatest bacteriologists of all time. At Wollstein Koch did the work on anthrax which we have already considered, worked on technical matters, such as staining and photomicrography of bacteria, and published a classic paper on the bacteriology of wound infections.
He showed that anthrax bacilli could survive a long time on the ground and that they could be recovered from the surface of the ground ten months after an animal had been buried in that area, even after deep burial. In one experiment four sheep were kept over the grave of an animal dead of anthrax and buried over two years before. One of the sheep died of anthrax on the eighth day and Pasteur was able to show, by guinea-pig inoculation, the presence of anthrax bacilli in the surface soil and particularly in the casts of earthworms, it being these creatures which transport the anthrax spores from a carcass deeply buried.
